Grey Painting on a Grey Day

Barbican Estate, London

London’s living up to its stereotype today and is very grey and rainy again. It seemed appropriate to have a go at something different and paint only in grey. No colour, no pen or pencil to guide, just a couple of brushes and some Payne’s Grey watercolour paint. Everything outside looks pretty monotone at the moment anyway but I think a misty, wet day kind of emphasises that, so painting this way kind of captured the mood.
