Agistri, Greece - Rosy's Little Village, sea steps
Using the same paper pad, I used both a soft (5b) pencil and travel watercolour pack to sketch in these steps we used to get into the water (on the rare occasion when I didn't want to dive staright in!). Because of the grey substrate, I had to adopt a 'non-purist' watercolour technique of adding the ripples and steps colour in white Conté pencil/crayon. (Normally the white of the paper is retained for pure whites).
