Watercolour and Video added…

Night Time in St. Ives

Hi everyone

Watercolour on Arches NOT paper. 140lb. 1/4 imperial. Steven Cronin set a challenge on his Patreon site with this photo. Taken by Steven, it’s a night time scene at St Ives Cornwall. I used a very limited palette of neutral tint, light red and rose madder, with white gouache to bring out the highlights. I’ve videoed this and it is now available to watch on my YouTube channel.

Added ‘Winter Trees’ – After Ted Wesson

Good morning everyone.

I forgot to add this painting I did recently for a video. This is ‘Winter Trees’ a watercolour on Bockingford NOT paper. 200lb. 1/2 imperial. Ted Wesson is one of my favourite artists. I love his loose style and limited palette. It was a joy to paint and the video is available on my YouTube channel Just click here if you’re interested. It lasts about an hour, but you can skip through it if you wish.

Happy painting

Watercolour added… Golitha Falls in Winter

Hi everybody.

Well, it’s getting towards that time of year.The sun has been blazing today so I thought I’d paint this years Christmas card! I need a bit of lead time to get the cards printed. So here it is. ‘Golitha Falls in Winter’ a watercolour on Arches rough paper. 140lb. 1/2 imperial. I thought I’d use a rough paper for the texture you can achieve with dry brush work. I also changed the season from the reference photo. The photo was an Autumn scene, but obviously, snow fits better with Christmas (at least in England), but saying that I can’t remember the last white Christmas (discounting Bing and Danny Kaye of course). I wanted the strong light source to silhouette the central trees.  As I said, the reference source came from the internet as an autumn scene, but I changed the season to match a winter scene. I’ve tried to make the centre trees contre-jour (against the light) with a strong sunrise. I have made a video of the painting process for this and I’ve posted it on my YouTube channel at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QiXIpSf8Fuo
