'Watercolour Basics & Beyond' - Part 5

The May edition of Leisure Painter is now in the shops. Part 5 of my series 'Watercolour Basics and Beyond' is all about dry-brush technique. It features a step-by-step exercise and also a painting of Broadsands beach.

Demonstration for Epsom & Ewell Art Group

Last Wednesday I did a demonstration painting for Epsom & Ewell Art Group. The subject was 'Boats and Reflections' and this was the end result. This is a scene from Dartmouth and features a couple of Brixham trawlers. I ran out of time towards the end but I managed to complete most of what I wanted to get across in about an hour and a half.
Painted on a stretched half imperial sheet of 200lb Bockingford NOT paper.

Demonstration, West Dartmoor Art Group

Yesterday, I did a demonstration for West Dartmoor Art Group, at Peter Tavy. 'Seascape in Watercolour' was the subject, so I did this rocky coastal scene of Lundy Island.
Thank you to Dick Brown, who recorded my progress in these photos.
