Saturday 6th of October…my Start Art group with four new members did a good job on an autumn scene. We did our own interpretation of an exercise from the book ‘ The big book of painting nature in watercolour’ by Ferdinand Petrie. I can really recommend it. Nine pictures by the group…one got away!
Achieving recession in a painting
A busy morning doing some preliminary work towards a painting of Carreg Cennen from one of my references photos.
We continued our work inspired by the artist Aubrey Phillips painting big skies and putting depth into our seascapes. Preliminary work was done on large sheets of cartridge paper and then we moved on to watercolour paper..
Continuing our work with watercolour washes
Today I continued working with some recent ideas for encouraging us all to paint looser, bigger and lose some of out inhibitions about making ‘mistakes’.
