Bristol Savages Sketch Night - Artistic Licence

20190123_191216

Wednesday night sketch night at the Bristol Savages painting group. Topic for the night "Artistic Licence". So we have 2 hours to paint based on that subject without using any reference material, so from memory really. But a title like that...a free for all! #watercolour #bristolartist #bristolsavages painted on Saunders Waterford Cold Press #stcmill

Some lucky splattering on the wheel - Fabriano

Lucky splattering on the wheel fabriano

Fabriano, Italy, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

I'm in to splattering at the moment - in moderation though.  Trying not to overdo it.  But I thought the lucky strike on the nearby car wheel arch was just on target.  Normally with wheels of cars, I try to understate them.  To me they just don't look right with perfect wheels - tyres and so on.

The Bank Castillon-la-Bataille

The Bank Castillon-la-Bataille

Castillon-la-Bataille, France, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

A 3-colour palette painting of this pretty town in South West France.  The sky wash was painted into the rooftops then while it was still moist I painted in the roof colours with a slightly thicker consistency paint to get the soft edges.

Walk down to the River, St Foy la Grande, France

Walk down to the river st foy la grande

St Foy la Grande, France, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

Just a simple scene of some steps (leading down to the River Dordogne) in the town of St Foy la Grande, just alongside a major bridge there.  And a simple backdrop of a building catching some bright sunlight from the left.  Painted with my trusty 3-colour palette.

Le Fil Good Cafe - St Foy la Grande, France

Le fil good cafe st foy la grande

St Foy la Grande, watercolour, 15" x 11"

St Foy la Grande in SW France.  I loved the diagonal shadows across the building created by the signposts and CCTV cameras on the corner of the cafe.  Must be a very secure place!  Painted with my 3-colour palette.  Nice place to sit and watch the world go by.

Bristol Savages Sketch Night - Into the Unknown

Bristol savages into the unknown

Watercolour, 15" x 11"

Bristol Savages sketch night and the topic given by the Chairman of the evening - "into the unknown".  I stayed clear of BREXIT related subject and stayed traditional.  So a scene of a boat going up the river in a Staithes inspired scene - sorry to local residents only you have 2 hours to complete a painting without any reference material or looking up photos!

Well I decided to paint the sky twice on this one....

Libourne france paint sky twice

Libourne, France, 15" x 11"

I don't always advocate painting a sky twice in watercolour but this time I think it needed it for a bit of extra impact. Normally a sky is done in one go with me.  This is the main square in the centre of town.  Also painted with my restricted 3 colour palette.
