Tonal Painting ‘Class Demonstrations’

Tonal Painting Scotland Cottages  Working in one colour, helps you to understand ‘tone’ better, the hue, is the colour i.e. red, blue, yellow etc…  The tone is the lightness or darkness of that colour.  In Watercolour, when working on a white surface, the light is represented by the paper, the artist is in large, painting shades.  Areas of white paper can be left, creating ‘VITAL’ highlighted contrasts.Tonal Painting Godolphin

Talented Learner

From Beginner to Winner!  Tessa from the Menheniot Art Class,  and ‘New to Watercolour’, has done very well indeed in a local horticultural show.  In my eyes they are all winning entries, and she must be very pleased with her work, I know I am.

Here are those paintings, Well Done Tessa.

‘Photo Format’ of the ‘En-Plein Air’ Painting Class at Blisland.’

The last day of the term at the ‘Blisland’ Watercolour Class, was a beautiful morning, and the planned exercise was a sketching and painting exercise in 15 minutes.  After a practice run indoors the learners went outside with sketchbooks and paint palettes and completed some further quick sketches ‘en plein air’.

The first set of images are of the learners themselves dotted around the heart of Blisland, sketching and paintings speedily, the second group of images are of the actual speedy paintings and sketches.  They all enjoyed the experience and have said that its something that they would do in the summer holidays.

And here are the quick sketches they all produced, on a lovely morning in Blisland.

Final Group of Learner Paintings of ‘Old Wheels’.

Here is the last of the ‘Watercolour Paintings of ‘Wheels in varying condition / state’s of repair by the Learners of the ‘Pensilva’ and ‘Menheniot’ Classes.  As before, the wheels have ‘seen better days’, BUT as per the previous post of ‘Learner Paintings’, they too have produced ‘Characterful’ / Life like Paintings, showing real Artistic Flair.

I am extremely pleased with their end results, Well Done Everyone.
