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.

 

 


Totnes High Street #2

Totnes high street 2

Totnes, Devon, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

The top of the High Street in Totnes, Devon, UK.  A winter's day and the sun is quite low in the sky.  Playing around with shadows in this one - angular shapes and cool, dark colours.

Painted on Saunders Waterford, Cold Press, 300 gms.

Boat Yard - Watermouth Bay, Devon

Shipyard watermouth bay

Watermouth Bay, Devon UK,  Watercolour, 15" x 11"

The small boatyard at Watermouth Bay in North Devon.   Not a large boatyard, but in a very pretty location which I have painted a few times (especially the lifeboat at low tide).  The boatyard runs up to the left.  In front the ground slopes down to the sea, way over to the right.  I tried to make a feature of the rocky foreground here and a small stream running under the pathway.

3 Boats, Kingswear, Dartmouth

Watercolor 15" x 11"

A bit of an imaginary one this.  Just taking the outline of some buildings and loosely basing the composition on a view towards Kingswear on the other side of the river Dart from Dartsmouth.  I'm going for a fairly calm scene here and a touch of bright light ober in the distance to the right.

Sunrise, Inner Harbour, Dartmouth

Dartmouth, Devon, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

I'm doing a lot of pre-wetting the paper at the moment, to get a soft glow to light in the sky and the reflection in water.  So here I applied to a scene I have done a few times before - the inner harbour in Dartmouth, Devon.  I don't normally do a red sky, but went for a bit of atmosphere in this one and keeping it loose.

Demo Painting to Bristol Art Group - Kingswear, Devon

Kingswear devon demo to bristol art group t

Kingswear, Devon, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

A recent demo to a local art group and an exercise in perspective.  This is Kingswear in Devon, with a road on the left going uphill and a road on the right going down to the ferry station on the river.  Plus added complication of the buildings in the middle ground and the other side of the river (Datrmouth town).  Tricky.
