Yesterday, I was posting about the copper coast and the old disused copper mines that still exist. Here is a watercolour 7x9.5 ins, of one of those mines, Fabriano artistico paper 2014. I wanted the painting to be a bit moody, so I placed lovely warm shadows in the foreground, the ruin of the old mine in the middle ground.  White paper on the side of the building and old chimney that catches the light, with the background fading behind and the outlines of the cliffs. The road sweeps up to the ruin and on down the coast.
