Using gouache on a quick watercolour sketch,

Sketchbook 20 minute drawing followed by 20 minutes wash.
 This view is a quick sketch of Beverley Minster from Willow Lane, done in two stages. First 20 minutes pencil outline followed by 20 minutes wash. The sketchpad was approx A4. The sketchpad was purchased from the Ashmolean Museum where we had been to see the Pearlman collection, which featured ..." some of the most famous artists of the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist movements. This major exhibition includes a matchless group of paintings and watercolours by Paul Cézanne, as well as paintings and sculptures by artists including Paul Gauguin, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Edouard Manet, Vincent van Gogh, Jacques Lipchitz, Edgar Degas and Amedeo Modigliani." The sketchpad is actually poor quality, paper too thin making even a quick light wash difficult. However, creates a challenge. A young puppy at home meant this had to be quick and below you can see that I have used white gouache to add dead stems in the foreground. Whilst sketching some frogs were croaking loudly, hidden in dense vegetation emerging from the stream. A plop, followed by the tell tale line of bubbles, indicated a water vole swimming away. A drake mallard came over, studied me for a few minutes then exploded into the air.
