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!
