Grey Painting on a Grey Day

Barbican Estate, London

London’s living up to its stereotype today and is very grey and rainy again. It seemed appropriate to have a go at something different and paint only in grey. No colour, no pen or pencil to guide, just a couple of brushes and some Payne’s Grey watercolour paint. Everything outside looks pretty monotone at the moment anyway but I think a misty, wet day kind of emphasises that, so painting this way kind of captured the mood.

    Hello Cathryn.
    Great sketching!
    It was just as grey and dismal this morning on Portland, Dorset but looking out of the window just now, the sun is out…!

      Hi Stew. Good to ‘see’ you here again, thanks for popping by. We have quite a nice sunset here in London at the moment. Glad you saw some sun today. Let’s hope the days keep getting brighter now :).

      Ha! I suppose that had to come up sooner or later with this sketch – thanks for getting it out of the way ;).
