Apothecary

6x10 watercolor of an English apothecary shop (pharmacy), painted wet on dry, on Canson 140 lb cold press paper today.  The photo ref was featured in WetCanvas Weekend Drawing Event, courtesy of Lin, and is an old shop in Skipton, North Yorkshire Dales, UK. Our time limit is 2 hours.  I did an underpainting first of cerulean blue, quinacridone gold, and permanent rose and worked from a black and white photocopy.

I work at Emma's Apothecary and just stumbled across your painting - it's beautiful! I'll have to show my boss, she will love it.
