Jetty and misty morning at Saltash

Jetty and misty morning saltash t

Saltash, Cornwall, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

A bit of imaginary one this one, apart from the jetty - it soes exist down there.  I really enjoy doing these atmospheric ones - pre-wetting the paper and then laying down the first wash, leaving a bright area on the horizon.  As regards the horizon - leave it out.  Just transition slowly from sky to sea with a subtle change in colour.

Painted on Saunders Waterford, Cold Press, 300 gms.

St Foy la Grande - A loose one

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

I went a bit looser on this one - especially at the bottom/foreground.  Plenty of water and hold my board at a steep angle.  Let the watercolour do its own thing.

Bristol Savages Sketch Night - Life after lockdown

Bristol savages life after lockdown tim wilmot

Weekly sketch night with my art society, the 'Bristol Savages', and the topic for the night was "life after lockdown. So we have normally 2 hours to produce a painting based on that topic without the use of any reference material (so no cheating looking up on the web). Owning to the current social distancing restrictions, this of course was a virtual meeting.

 


Polperro, Cornwall

Polperro, Cornwall, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

Apart from the building and the shape of the background headland, a made up scene loosely based on Polperro in Cornwall UK.  I try to keep it loose and let the watercolor do its own thing.  While still damp, I do a bit of wet in wet with some darker values and get soft edges.

Demo painting to Bristol Art Group - Theatre Royal Bath

Demo for bristol art group p

Bath, UK, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

A recent demo, well last year, to the Bristol Art Group in a workshop format.  So I did the demo in stages like my online workshops making it easy to follow my step by step approach.  The subject here was the Theatre Royal in Bath and a bit of Contra Jour

Corner Cafes, Vilamoura Marina

Corner cafes vilamoura marina t

Vilamoura, Portugal, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

A sharp right-angle corner in the marina and a few canopies over cafes and restaurants along the waters edge.   I thought it made an interesting pattern looking across the tops of the parasols.  Palm trees simply painted with a small round brush and some dry brush marks, flicked to emulate palm fronds.
