Thebryce, unfortunately it is too small for me to comment on. I need just the painting itself O0

As usual I fiddle until my values drop requiring Paynes-grey to mix into the shadow colors.  I thought I might paint the plaster to offset the drop in values. The glazes turned opaque when I added in a small amount of white to try to lighten the values. Sorry, it totally changed the effect of a watercolor painting.

TY, I wish I had not used the white. It changed the nature of the watercolor paint so it acted like a gouache.

 :clap: :clap: Nice painting even if you used white,  but in water color to lighten the colour you just add water to your pigment mix and it lightens' it.   Best not to use white as much as you can.

It's a pity you used the  white and overdid the Paynes grey. Otherwise a very good painting :clap: :clap: :clap:

I personally never use white in my paintings other than perhaps a very small highlight and signing my name in a very dark area.
The same with black (Paynes grey is just a blue-black). Black not properly used can kill a painting. I also had to learn the hard way :'(
The chain is well done as well as the plank it is on. The left side has too much white and Paynes grey.
I would suggest you do this over again and post it below the one submitted for comparison. Will help you as well as the others O0

Oh, Louisa, fine work here.

Love the chain, wood grain, depth in the separation of the bricks, great cement.

Oh, so well done!  Dennis is going to be so proud!
