Selby Art Society Demo - 4th August 2014

Thank you to everyone who attended my demonstration last night. As usual I was made to feel really welcome, it feels like home after visiting you for over 20 years now!!
This is the completed coastal scene after working on it this morning for around an hour.
As you may see, I have changed the sky completely as I felt it was far too heavy for this particular subject. The only other changes were to complete the finishing touches to the water, beach and breakwaters.

If  you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. I hope to see you all again next year!

Staithes Workshop - 18th to 20th July 2014

This is the completed watercolour demonstration I painted at my workshop in Staithes last weekend. I spent around 15 minutes adding a little light to the road and making minor adjustments.

 This is the completed oil demonstration I also painted at my workshop in Staithes last weekend. This one looked fine when looking at it the next day, so I only spent around 5 minutes making minor adjustments.

Thank you to everyone who attended the workshop at Staithes and do contact me if you have any questions.
