I decided to paint these ladies on a new handmade watercolour paper I found on my latest visit to
The art store. It also has the most beautiful deckled edge.
I chose an earthy palette, wanting to add to the character of then era.
The colours used are,
Burnt umber, burnt sienna, yellow ochre and a little alizarin crimson.
It was a miserable rainy day today, perfect for painting :)
