'I love Whitstable' colour study II
Same study with darker colours added over the top of the lighter values
Having slept on this study for a few days, I decided I was unhappy with the pale tones of study 1. So because I wanted a darker foreground, I was able to paint over the lighter one and this time give the design a warmer, deeper reddish brown which ties in more strongly with the tabasco sauce bottle too and thus makes for a more harmonious piece. I also made the blue of the sky a deeper cerulean blue.
