Livorno, Italy, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

Sorry, there's loads more to come from Livorno.  This one was quite difficult to get the balance of composition looking right.  I had to include the boat on the right and a couple of bouys on the right to balance up with the left-hand side.  i think it worked.

Live and Online workshop to Onda Creativa - Demo #1

Onda_photo_workshop_video

Onda creativa workshop 1

First live and online demo to approx 60 attendees to the Onda Creativa Art Group.  Subject was a Google Street View image of Piazza della Frutta in Padua.  You have to be careful with perspective when using a street view image as your resource - camera is higher than a person so you are looking down more on the scene.  So you have to compensate and imagine you are lower!  Takes a bit of practice.

This was a 2-hour live demo with Q and A during the session run via zoom.  Needs a bit of multi-tasking!

St Foy Market Day

St foy market day

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

Market day is very busy in St Foy, South West France.  So busy that I concentrated on just a single trader!  Much easier.  A contra jour approach.  Bunting is a great way of adding interest higher up a street scene and a bit of contrast - light against dark.

Market Kiosk - Livorno

Market kiosk livorno

Livorno, Italy, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

I set myself a little challenge with this one - how to paint a group of scooters and bikes on the bottom right corner.  Well two things - keep it simple and just think of the overall shape of the objects combined, and then with the painting I used a little white gouache (greyed down a bit) for the windsheilds which I think looked quite effective.

Market Day Fivizzano 2019

42

Fivizzano, Italy, Watercolour 15" x 11"

My 3rd day demo on my October trip to Tuscany. here a plein air painting done on Market day in the town of Fivizzano.  You need to work fast here - by midday they're all gone and you have to paint from memory!  I liked the shadows across the scene and the challenge of painting those complicated market stalls.
