Reflections

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.

 

 


Venice Market - No Wash Method

Venice Market no wash

Venice Market, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

Normally my first painting stage is to lay down a wash over most of the paper except key areas I want to leave unpainted or white.  This time I painted top to bottom without any initial wash.  Hmmm different end look and a few extra white bits.

Painted on Saunders Waterford, Cold Press, 300 gms.

Bridge and Reflections, Porlock Weir

Porlock Weir, UK, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

A spot not too far away from me down on the North Somerset coast.  Another low tide painting.  Low tide, exposing the harbour bed, can be just as interesting as some boat reflections!  Well in this one, best of both worlds with the bridge reflection.

Blakeney Norfolk, UK

Blakeney, Norfolk, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

A very pretty part of the UK, Blakeney on the Norfolk coast and in an area of outstanding natural beauty.  I think it's important to get a graded wash for the water - light in the distance and then coming darker towards the foreground.  The challenging bit was the bottom right corner.  A large boat was there in the corner in the source photo, which I omitted for the painting, so I kept it fairly simple there.
