Steps Monte Del Bianchi

Steps Monte del Bianchi T

Monte del Bianchi, Italy, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

Anyone who has been on the Watermill Painting Holidays will walk pass these steps on a Friday excursion to the peaceful village of Monte del Biacnchi high up in the hills.  I quite fancied painting this one because of the angular shadows and the high contrast - bright walls and some deep dark shade.

Washing day Livorno

Washing day livorno

Watercolour 15" x 11"

I feel a washing day theme coming on.  hot on the heels of my Vernazza washing day, here's one from Livorno a bit further down the coast.  Maybe a misplaced red car - I normally recommend not having parts of vehicles going off the side, but it sort of works here I think and the parking road marks help take the eye onwards to the building.  I started with two figures on the left, but 2 more 'appeared' on the right after random lighter areas were left from the initial washes.

 

 


St Emilion Yellow Parasols

St Emilion, France, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

This is the bottom of the town as I call it.  On the right is a pizza restaurant bedecked in yellow and yellow parasols.  A contra jour shot looking down to the end of the town.

Polperro, Cornwall

Polperro, Cornwall, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

Apart from the building and the shape of the background headland, a made up scene loosely based on Polperro in Cornwall UK.  I try to keep it loose and let the watercolor do its own thing.  While still damp, I do a bit of wet in wet with some darker values and get soft edges.

Corner Cafes, Vilamoura Marina

Corner cafes vilamoura marina t

Vilamoura, Portugal, Watercolour, 15" x 11"

A sharp right-angle corner in the marina and a few canopies over cafes and restaurants along the waters edge.   I thought it made an interesting pattern looking across the tops of the parasols.  Palm trees simply painted with a small round brush and some dry brush marks, flicked to emulate palm fronds.

Bristol Savages Sketch Night - There will always be an England

Bristol savages there will always be an england by tim wilmot t

Weekly sketch night at my art society (well we are all at home locations for a bit), the 'Bristol Savages', and the topic for the night was 'There will always be an England'. So we have normally 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). Owning to the current social distancing restrictions, this of course was a virtual meeting.

My painting is based on a view looking down Gloucester Road and some dramatic shadows.

 


Wallingford Art Club - 2 hour online demo

Wallingford art club demo

2-hour demo via Zoom to 24 attendees from Wallingford Art Club.  I had selected 4 possible French Street scenes to paint and we all had a vote on what I would attempt for the demo.  Chosen scene was a pretty square in St Emilion South West France.  Demo covered composition, and how to simplify the scene.  Several watercolour techniques were covered and values.

Any art club out there who wants a couple of hours demo in watercolor, please contact me for details!
