This week’s challenge

The project for my watercolour class this week was to paint a landscape influenced by the work of Ivon Hitchens (1893-1979).  Hitchens’ most well known works are semi-abstract landscapes painted in oils, and quite large in scale.  To take a more bold approach I worked in gouache with quite large, flat brushes.  First I painted three smaller studies:

My larger painting is here. An interesting experiment, although not much like the paintings of Hitchens, in either palette or brushstrokes.
