I have just finished this watercolour so I guess this post is hot off the virtual press. There is a tiny bit of gouache on the bunting but the rest is purely watercolour. I've tried to experiment with focus in this piece. The alleyway or 'shambles' is very loose, deep in contrast but quite scratchy hopefully leading the eye towards the church which is much sharper and more detailed even though it's further away. Too me this gives an odd sensation as if the church is moving toward you, similar to those famous dolly zooms Spielberg used in Jaws. Click here to see what I mean.
