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

Pastel Seascape Workshop/Demonstration

Pastels are a superb medium and one that I enjoy very much, so when I was asked by the Padstow Art Group to demonstrate and tutor a workshop, I jumped at it.

The group followed a step by step demonstration and here is my finished Pastel Painting.

I had an excellent day and I was kept supplied with refreshing mugs of tea throughout the day, thank you Padstow Art Group.

Comments from the day were:

I think a wow would go well here!!  what a day and thank you so much for coming across and giving us lots of Ideas. 
We will be using you again and I hope soon,  I think most of us went home rather tired so that must be a sign that everyone enjoyed it, I know I did and was very tired, 

Here are a few more images of the day.

Week 5 ‘No’ Drawing Painting Challenge of Animals or People

Watercolour Painting: ‘Quietly having fun’….

I am supposed to be getting looser with these ‘No’ drawing painting challenges, but I seem to be getting more fussy!!

I started off with getting the overall shape of the figure in step 1.

In Step 2 I added some further colour and shadows.

In Step 3 increasing some darks and the water and sand area.

I didn’t want to overdo the painting, I wanted it to be innocent and delicate.Colours I have used are: Winsor Blue (Red Shade), Winsor Lemon, Raw Sienna and Light Red.

Week 4 ‘No’ Drawing Painting Challenge of Animals or People

Who’s legs are whose!

I really enjoyed doing this little painting with no drawing, it was less stressful than the portrait!!

I have used French Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Umber.
