Caernarfon castle from the South

A misty day in May.
The crenelated towers were challenging, angles and details impossible to capture correctly with my left hand.

I thought maybe the colours were too intense so I washed the whole painting with cold water and then brushed away at the paint with an old toothbrush. I’ve never thought to do that be for but I like the grainy look it brings, as though your eyes are fighting against mist and fading eyesight to focus clearly on what is in front of you.
