Last week in Mandelieu, the water temperature reached 25°C !. I chose to sketch only 3 characters , 1 woman reading in front of me and 2 anglers at the back. As I did not have any salt with me, I took some sand and poured it onto the wet watercolour for the sandy bit to make some texture… The result was disappointing because the watercolour dried too quickly and the sand was not absorbent enough for this technique. Another interesting trial was to paint with my sunglasses on all the time. The result is a painting with stronger and darker colours.
