The collaboration of watercolour & watercolour pencil techniques was my inspiration to do this piece. The stormy cloudy background that I created was wet on wet & dry brush watercolour techniques with areas of the paper left untouched by watercolour. I love the way that colour blends together when using the wet on wet technique to create its own feel. The kites were first dawn & then watercolour pencil added then blended after the background was dry. I added the lines to the kites trialling off to the left of the painting. Researching some images of kites before I started this piece has made me realize that there are hundreds of different designs for kites & competitive kite flying has been a popular sport for a long time in different parts of the world. With so many designs, shapes & colours of kites it gives me more inspiration to paint more of this subject.
