Six distant hills

They’re all Stantonbury Hill, which I’ve sketched many times before, seen from North Bath. The first three were painted in quick succession in opaque watercolour on a rainy afternoon, then one in bamboo dip pen, and then a couple of quick translucent watercolours. After trying gouache and never really getting on with their chalky feel, I’m enjoying the opaque watercolours much much more. They’re smooth flowing, and just as rich and contrasting on toned paper. Three of them have joined Titanium White in my otherwise translucent new palette.
