Watercolour demonstration at Hobbycraft

I have been demonstrating with watercolour today at my local Hobbycraft store in Cheltenham.

IMG_20131207_124633The photo above is of the demo table set up with a display of my work. I took a mixture of things along, hoping that there would be something to appeal to everyone. My intention was to inspire people to see the versatility that can be achieved with watercolour.

The two sunsets at the front of the photo are the paintings I was working on, along with the iris painting in the centre by the colour chart. Many thanks to all the friendly people who stopped by to say hello!   I’ll post the finished work as soon as it’s completed……..

 

For people who are purchasing medicaments online, there are some significant factors that couldn’t being ignored. Online pharmacies provides best-quality prescription medicaments and vitamins. There are different others. Learn more about “how long does cialis last after taking it“. Certainly there are also other substantial questions. Nearly every man knows at least slightly about “how long does cialis last 20 mg“. The most essential factor you have to look for is “how long does cialis 5mg last“. Generally, having trouble getting an erection can be difficult. If you practice some other symptoms which you think may be due to this medicament, discuss with your pharmacist.

Edge of the Cotswolds

From the window of my studio, I can just see the first ridge of the Cotswold hills on the horizon. Here is a video of me trying to capture the beauty of the morning skyline:

After the watercolour I used Derwent Inktense blocks to draw back in & add some texture to the landscape.

P.S. This is the first time I’ve added a soundtrack onto a video. The music is ‘Punchbag’ by The Bees (apparently they make this music in a garden shed in Brighton!) The full version is here.

Also, if you’re interested to look at the Inktense blocks, you can see them here.

Sketchbook Project

I met my friend, cococita, a talented photographer, through an online course. She has a keen eye for colour & composition. When she asked, I was only too pleased to give some feedback on a sketchbook she had made. The work was part of  The Sketchbook Project 2012 .

Participants were asked to select a theme for their sketchbook. The one chosen was ‘The first ever …’ and the sketchbook is entitled ‘The Beauty of Simplicity’.

The sketchbook incorporates a number of different themes: accessories/clothes, pattern/graphics, bottles/pots & flowers. They are connected by the clean linear nature of the drawing & balanced presentation

I noticed the vase of white tulips in one of the photos with the sketchbook drawing of them and liked the way the shadows fell on the page, echoing the shapes. 

The artist seems to be interested in the relationship between objects & the space they take up.

I love the outline drawings of the vases & the way that real objects have beenplaced on top of & then photographed- the interplay between the real object & a representation of it. The work of the British artist, Ben Nicholson , explores similar themes. Some of his work was concerned with outlines & overlapping shapes of bottles & pots.

The work shows a keen eye for design & balance. ‘The Beauty of Simplicity’ was also an interesting title & was reflected it well in the pages. I really like the use of  collage combined with drawing (this is something I am also exploring in my own work) & enjoyed this aspect of the work.
