This is ‘The Maestro At Work’ – A watercolour on Arches NOT paper. 140lb. 1/4 imperial. On a recent visit to Tavistock we spent a pleasant 45 mins listening to Al Marconi who is a brilliant classical guitarist. We purchased 3 CD’s from him because he is so good. A fellow Steve Hackett fan, he gave us a quick rendition of ‘Horizons’. Made us very happy. A great man to chat to. Painted from my own photo with kind permission from Al himself.
This is Bosham – Chichester, Sussex – After Geoff Kersey.
Watercolour on Arches NOT paper. 140lb. 1/2 imperial. Another one of Geoff’s tutorials. I had major problems with the paper on this one. It’s been on my stretcher board for some time and I had problems with the surface, particularly on the sky. I think the paper had picked up grease from my hands due to it being manhandled quite a lot. I may even have re-stretched it. I can’t remember now. I used a new app on my iPad for the drawing. It’s based on the camera lucida and it worked really well.
