Greece - Ian Wilmot

Greece ian Wilmot

A second painting based on one of my late brothers, black and white photos.  It was a holiday he had to one of the Greek islands.  I don't know the exact location, but even in black and white, you could sense the bright light and the lovely hillside as the background coming down to the harbour.  I was just guessing the colours, but hopefully was close to the mark.

Nice one Ian!


Yellow Parasols, Vernazza

Vernazza, Italy, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

For me, it's important to get that first wash down with important base colours.  So in this scene of Vernazza on the Cinque Terre, I laid down a blue sky wash, down over the hills with the main colour of the buildings, then to the foreground with the yellow, allowing it to flow into the street.  Then with the darks I paint around shapes to define them, like the top border of the village.

Hilltop houses, La Gomera, Spain

Hill top houses la gomera

La Gomera, Spain, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

A row of hilltop houses in San Sebastien, La Gomera.  So the scene attracted me for - the brightly coloured houses on the ridge of the hill overlooking the town, and the barren scrubland below, with a lovely mix of greens and reds.  Then, every now and then, some dark shadows giving some deeper values.

Mountains beyond Monte dei Bianchi, Tuscany

Monte del Bianchi mountains

Tuscany, Italy, 22" x 15"

A quickie done in about 30 minutes as a demo on the last day of the workshop I held in Tuscany this year.  The village of Monte dei Bianchi is up there somewhere.  Lovely majestic peaks of the mountains in the distance and the sweeping shadows of the nearby trees I thought made for an ideal watercolour demo without too much detail and the need to put in figures etc.  Also done with a 3 colour palette consisting of a blue, yellow and red of course and a neutral tint.

Marseille Old Port

Marseille_old_port

Watercolour of Marseille, 22" x 15" on Saunders Waterford Rough 300gms.

The Old Port of Marseille, a rectangular expanse of water running into the centre of the city and reminding me of a bigger version of my home town Bristol's own waterfront.  The view is looking up to the Basilica Notre Dame de la Garde, the highest point in Marseille and a great view over the city.  The view is framed by the local coast guard boat on the left and smaller vessels on the right.  Hundreds of yacht masts clutter the middle ground.
