Demonstration at Exmouth

I was at Exmouth last night, to do a demonstration for Exmouth Art Group. I painted this one on a half imperial sheet of Saunders Waterford 200lb NOT, which I had stretched onto a board the previous day.
Thanks to Paul Gosling for the photo of me with the finished painting.

'Loosening Up Your Watercolour'

'Loosening Up Your Watercolour' was the theme of this demonstration painting for Kingskerswell Art Group yesterday. I decided to paint another view of the boats at Charlestown, Cornwall. Although quite a busy scene, especially in the background, I simplified as much as I could and put most of the emphasis on the boats themselves. I used my mop brushes to paint fluid, loose washes. The boat hulls and their reflections were painted wet-into-wet in one go.
