Rue de Ble, Cherbourg, France

Rue au Ble Cherbourg France

Cherbourg, France, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

A recent painting painted with one brush - a large synthetic blend brush from Lebenzon.  First time I used this large brush and new brushes take a few paintings to get used to how they handle, how much paint they can take, the marks they make, etc...  One benefit of using one brush for the whole job - you don't need to keep thinking "shall I change my brush now" when painting different areas or stages of the process.  Keeps it simple and the momentum going when timing is very important in watercolour.

The Orange Courtyard Lisbon

Lisboa Rosa Patreon

Painting based on a courtyard in Lisbon.  I will call it the Orange Courtyard because of the oranges growing.  This painting is based on an image shared by a patron of mine on my Patreon site where we I have an image sharing section for painting inspiration.  So thanks Rosa for this one.

Mijas - Round Building

Mijas round building

The subject of a recent video up on my YouTube Channel, and the 'round' apartment building as I call it in the popular town of Mijas in southern Spain.  Very popular with the tourists, this is the 'edge' of the main tourist area with its network of narrow roads.  The levels of the building were quite tricky as they are not symmetrical - quite quirky!

Watercolor 15" x 11" on Saunders Waterford paper.

Fortezza Nuova Livorno

Fortezza Nuova Livorno t

Fortezza Nuova Livorno, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

The red-brown fortress walls as a backdrop to a marina within the city of Livorno.  I went fairly loose with the background, and just a few slices left light to indicate roof tops and so on.  On the right is actually a block of flats, but inappropriate to paint in every window/balcony etc.

Fivizzano Shadows, #2

Fivizzano shadows 2 t

Fivizzano, Italy, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

Another painting of Fivizzano.  It's after midday, the weekly market has ended, and the streets are a little quieter.  Great location for loads of plein air painting and fabulous views down every street.  I went quite loose with this one and made a play of the warm tones of the buildings on the other side of the street.

Steps Monte Del Bianchi

Steps Monte del Bianchi T

Monte del Bianchi, Italy, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

Anyone who has been on the Watermill Painting Holidays will walk pass these steps on a Friday excursion to the peaceful village of Monte del Biacnchi high up in the hills.  I quite fancied painting this one because of the angular shadows and the high contrast - bright walls and some deep dark shade.
