Places I would like to be – San Francisco.

Hi All

I was watching the new Rick Stein programme on TV the other evening, it’s called Road to Mexico and starts in San Francisco. If you don’t know of him he is famous chef with restaurants in Cornwall, and produces really interesting TV programmes and Cookery Books.

It reminded me of great visits there and the waterfront scenes got me thinking about a watercolour of the of the skyline.

In fact today I painted two scenes, one large 20 inches by 14 and one small 10 inches by 4.

Both are almost monochrome but use a mixture of Teal Blue and Violet as the base colours.

They are little different from my normal watercolours so I hope you will like them. They were certainly fun to paint and very quick too!

So here they are

San Francisco Skyline. Watercolour 10 inches by 4. Painted on Khadi paper. Wet into wet technique.

Yachts sailing at San Francisco. Large watercolour 20 inches by 14. Painted on Arches hot pressed paper using a number of watercolour washes.

I hope you like them, and if you are like me you will remember San Francisco fondly.

Happy travelling

Brian
