Shanghai Shanghai

Here are some of the little studies I've been doing recently, walking down the street until something get my attention, but then again, it need to be a suitable spot to sit or lean on something to paint. On my palette I'm carrying, Ultramarine, Phtalo Blue, Cadmium Red, Alizarin Crimson, Yellow Cadmium & Yellow Lemon. Big focus on temperatures, I've discover interesting ways of making greys. I'm using a little block, Fabriano, 5x7 inches, 140lbs, grana fina, cp. 2010 is a year of progress for me, encouraging for what is coming next.

Hi Audran, Great to see you are painting again. I thoroughly enjoyed your recent Shanghai studies. I hope you are now settled in and enjoying your new job. Take care and I look forward to you posting your next series of watercolours.
With kindest regards to you and your family, Geoffrey

Nice studies..well done.
Thanks for the info on the study on my blog. I was told by William Schneider the artist...maybe I got confused since I wasn't familiar with the painting. I'll have to set my side kick straight also.
nice blog...I'll be back to visit...

Geoffrey, thanks, we are settling down slowly, we should move into our place in a week of so. Make sure to visit Jin from time to time.

Dawn, thanks no worries, I'm just a huge fan of sargent & zorn. I had to say something :) I enjoyed your blog too.
