Tarragona Cathedral - One Brush

Tarragona Cathedral one brush

Tarragona Cathedral, Spain, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

I restricted myself to one brush for this painting with a large goat/synthetic mop brush from Lebenzon.  You certainly get a lot of freedom and a bit more creativity with the brush by sticking to one versatile brush.  This brush is also great for painting large areas in one go and also fine lines.

Painted on Saunders Waterford, Cold Press, 300 gms.

Frejus France

Frejus painting by Tim Wilmot

Thanks to Patreon member Judy Sadler for kind permission to use her photo (in our Source Photo section!) of Frejus in France for this video I will put together soon.

I find I am pre wetting my paper quite often, after drawing and before doing the first wash.  this one was done in this way.  Paper stayed damp for quite some time (in my cold studio!)

Calle Cuesta de Santo Domingo Ronda Spain

Calle Cuesta de Santo Domingo Ronda Spain

Ronda, Spain, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

Certainly a bit of warm and cool in this one, and a range of values to create bright light!  Scene is a small street on the southern side of Ronda, and some tricky perspective, looking up this hill and that bit of a curve in the road.

Warms and cools and some angular shadows.  Open air restaurant on the left side and sneaked in a waiter!  And a cyclist in the shade...

Demo Painting - Watermouth Harbour

Ashtead Art Group demo jan 2021 by Tim Wilmot

Last nights demo to Ashtead Art Group.  Brief was to paint some barges in a river scene.  Unfortunately I had no suitable images, so the group, after a vote/poll I set up, decided on this scene from Watermouth Harbour in North Devon.  No barges, but some simple boat shapes, low tide and an exercise in values and composition.

Are you an Art Group?  Want to have either a 2-hour demo with me or an interactive online workshop?  Please contact me for details.
