Demonstration for Whitby Art Society 11th January 2012

Many thanks to all who attended my Watercolour Demonstration on Wednesday evening at Sneaton Castle.
After looking at the painting on Thursday morning I was pleased to see it needed less work than I had anticipated to finish it!
So to complete the painting I carried out the following steps:
  • I deepened the 'darks' on the gable end of the cottage by further 'wet into wet' glazes of Raw Sienna & Permanent Magenta and Cobalt Blue & Permanent Magenta.
  • I worked on the car a little to create a more convincing form.
  • I added washes of Raw Sienna & Cobalt Violet, Cobalt Blue & Permanent, Cobalt Blue & Permanent Magenta & Raw Sienna to the foreground snow
  • Lastly I gave the dark hedges a final glaze with Cobalt Blue & Permanent Magenta.
