Eveneing demo at Cowbridge Art Society

My two-hour demos normally include me painting 2 watercolours.  As a rule, I like to paint a scene very local to the venue.  So a shortlist of photos are presented to the attendees, and a vote is taken on which 2 to paint.  So my visit to Cowbridge Art Society had these 4 photos as the choice:

Cowbridge art society 1

The most popular 2 were the Physic Garden top right and Ogmore Castle bottom left.  So each of the following paintings were done in under an hour, with a bit of commentary from me along the way:

Bristol Savages Sketch Night - 'Challenges Ahead'

Bristol savages challenges ahead p

Watercolour, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

Weekly sketch night at my art society, the 'Bristol Savages', and the topic for the night was 'Challenges Ahead' (I think) - probably inspired by the virus issues at the moment. So we have 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).  I came up with an idea, someone with reduced mobility, climbing some steps.  Inspired by a Tuscan scene I have painted a couple of times.  Paint a scene enough times, you sort of remember it.

Verrucola - Bridge and Castle view - Plein Air from my Tuscany Trip

River valley and bridge Verrucola 2019

Hello everyone.
 
This was our day 2 location - the castle top village of Verrucola, high up in the hills. We were a bit unlucky with the weather. It rained in the morning, so we were confined to the studio where we painted a scene from Pisa. But after a hearty traditional Italian stew, we painted this pretty scene looking at the main bridge across the river valley and the view of the castle with its bell tower. And the sun made an appearance!
