Fishing

Fishing
Moleskine Sketchbook
Watercolour, Pen, Pencil.

Dark cliffs full of colours, if I hadn't stopped and watched I would have written them off as a dark and gloomy grey but look longer, give it time and the colours gush out.  Deep reds, interesting greens, blackest blues and bruises of purple.  Interesting and complicated.  Don't judge a book by its cover, don't judge a cliff by the weather, linger longer, ask questions, dig a bit deeper.

I absolutely agree about the linger longer approach. I very rarely see the colours in darks at first glance. Your eyes need time to adjust.

Great sketch!

Even on the dullest day, colours are present. Cliffs like these are like a rainbow at times if you allow yourself time to study them.
