I was invited to do a watercolour demonstration at the Nepean Art Society, in Sydney’s West on October 1st.
I had a very warm welcome and painted for them a colourful sunset boat and water scene.
My painting process was relayed up on a screen, for easy viewing for the audience.
Here are some photos from the demonstration. I used wet in wet techniques for the sunset sky.
I showed that the sky and water is done in the first wash of the painting.
I pointed out that my water jar was completely clear. This is because, prior to starting my first wash, I placed a sufficient amount of water in my palette. I used the water in my palette (mixed with previous colours), to mix the following washes for my painting. This also keeps the painting harmonious in hue.
