Chevet de l’église Saint-Eloi

Chevet de l'église Saint-Eloi

This doodlewash is of Chevet de l’église Saint-Eloi in Roissy-en-France, France. I’ve never been here, but found several photos of it and tried to recreate it for a #DrawingAugust sketch, which I, of course, had to doodlewash.

I didn’t have much time for this one, so I used primarily French Ultramarine Blue, Burnt Sienna, and Sap Green. And I also have a confession. I bought tiny tubes of the Winsor & Newton Professional Watercolour of these 3 colors just to try them out. The color is definitely more vivid, albeit more expensive, so I’ll slowly be upgrading anytime Philippe is looking the other way and I can sneak one in.

It’s pretty amazing the number of colors you can create with just Ultramarine Blue and Burt Sienna. I’d love to try a doodlewash with just these two colors soon as I’ve seen from other artists. It’s pretty cool. But for this one, I just had to try out the new Sap Green, so that will have to wait for a future doodlewash!

    I’m so impressed with how much you get done in the day . You might try ultramarine and burnt umber — that’s my favorite color mix.

      I’ll try that too Kit!! Hehe…and I just doodlewash rather quickly. I figure I can always steal 45 minutes to an hour or so every day to do what I love! 😉

    I was blown away when I realized the difference in the level of pigmentation between student grade and pro watercolors. I have used up/given away all my student grade to a lovely grade schooler who loves my cast-offs!

      Awesome! Yeah, pro colors are definitely the way to go. I didn’t last long on student grade before wanting those lovely vivid colors!! hehe 😃💕
