The Grand canal Dublin,watercolour 9.5x7 ins. Fabriano artistico paper.  I used colours here that are in addition to my usual palette. Magenta in the foreground and the tree as well, also I used cadmium yellow light, which is opaque compared to my usual winsor yellow. I needed to get the foreground soft and washy, but warm as well.  Hence the mixture of cad yellow light and magenta.  The mixture was brought from the tree down to the tow path to give unity, warmth and depth.
