Painting skies and clouds in watercolor is an exciting prospect for an artist and the process is made easier by this video of artist Patrick-Ley Greaves. Mixing of colors, developing negative shapes, leaving edges soft and hard as well as working in wet in wet and wet on dry are some of the techniques one can learn from this demonstration. More of his videos at Patrick’s website.

Autumn lane

This is an attempt of Geoff Kersey’s autumn lane. His video demonstration is available on thepaintinganddrawingchannel.com.

Though my work is not comparable to the original and looks most part a lot of mud, I have so many positives to take from it and it has given me the confidence to improve further, and I hope to post an improved version later.

The channel’s schedule for September includes programmes featuring artists such as Frank Halliday, Linda Kemp, Bente King, Richard Taylor, Jill Bays, Arnold Lowrey, Hazel Soan, and themes such as landscapes, botanical art, drawing workshops, painting buildings, acrylics and so on. So much in store for the art student.

How nice it would be to live in a house like that with fewer wants, leading a simple life…

Just practising hard to come to some grips with this most fascinating medium. And also the pink is most alluring.

This one painted using a watercolor reference picture. Though it is not true to the original, I really enjoyed the process, and again quality brushwork eluded me.

This one done using a reference watercolor painting. As you can see, my brushwork is not upto the mark, and I hope to improve it.
