Yellow And Red

Husb and I were sitting on an archaic bench in Valetta a few days ago so I had a scribble. Most of Malta is built from stone quarried on the island. It’s a yellowish limestone, a similar colour to the stone used to build Bath. Right at the bottom of a jumble of tall, skinny, yellow buildings and rooftop television arials stood an old British style red phonebox. I had my watercolour box with me and put a wash over the line drawing.

Drawn with Faber Castell Pitt drawing pens sizes S, F and M and Winsor & Newton watercolours into my A5 Tate Gallery sketchbook.

    I like the limited palette: the sky so close in colour to the buildings, and the wonderful phonebox.
