March 2018 Watercolor Challenge - Stott Park Bobbin Mill

A Lake District landmark this month, Stott Park Bobbin Mill near Lake Windermere.



There's a large image in the RIL HERE.

This was a place we visited with Bill and Janet when they came. It is near Lakeside.

Here's my version: 12x9 Bockingford CP pad.



This was a challenge I gave to Bill in 2011 after we visited it on a tour of the Lake District with Bill and Janet. It is on the road from Lakeside to Hill Top of Beatrice Potter fame.

Very interesting Doug! I like your photo too. We must have been near there in 2008, got to Beatrice Potter's farm too late to go in, too bad we didn't know about this, it looks worth a visit.

Re: March 2018 Watercolor Challenge - Stott Park Bobbin Mill

I dunno about this. I feel like it still needs some work. I’m having difficulty getting the values of the Buildings correct. Not sure if I want to bust out the microns. Any suggestions would be great. 140lb Arches Rough W&N and DS Paints.

I think you are almost there. Nice drawing, perhaps introduce some shadows to create a 3D effect on the chimney for example.

Re: March 2018 Watercolor Challenge - Stott Park Bobbin Mill

What a challenge. I made two attempts and had to throw them into the bin. It is deceptively tricky: a lot of green, that dark shed roof and deep shadow, and the walls/roof area very close mid values. Well, I will have to try again!

Re: March 2018 Watercolor Challenge - Stott Park Bobbin Mill

Thanks for another challenge.


I have had to draw this out a few times to get to 'know it'. It is not an easy drawing with the slope of the hill. The perspective lines went belly up. But I have it now. ( drawn at least)

Cheers

I really like your watercolour Red. It has a nice glow and juicy colours, particularly the grass.

Thanks for the kind words, John.

It kind of looks like I was trying for 50 shades of green.
