Shades of Grey

Siobhan Sheridan shared a photo on Instagram a few days ago. It depicted a grey sea, a grey sky, and some heavy, grey clouds. It’s a lovely moody picture which stuck in my head long after I finished looking at it.

Over the weekend I took my block of Aquarelle Arches panoramic paper, and loosely recreated the scene from the photo.

I really enjoyed the ragging technique which I used in the upper third of the image, so much so that I’ve started on a much larger scale version.

This is a work in progress, you can see the two art works together here for comparison purposes.
