Eilean Donan Castle. Michele Clamp. Watercolor. 11”x14”

Always a favorite. There isn’t a view of this that isn’t worth painting. I especially loved the warm ochres of the castle contrasting with the blues of the sky and water.

Some intermediates:

I’ve also included a shot of my preliminary color swatches. I match the important areas to the Munsell system and practice hitting the right hue, value, and chroma. I can always tell if the color palette will result in a harmonious picture from the result. Definitely looked good for this one.
