wet into wet A practice for beginners and more advanced watercolour painters

A short movie for making a wet into wet watercolour! You have to be bold and have a bit of courage! But it is more satisfying when it works out nice! When you are afraid to spoil a good piece of paper, don't try it before you dare it! Or do practice rounds on cheaper paper. I paint on a quarter sheet Bockingford 200lb made by StCuthbertsmil. Its really a nice paper to paint on! The 200Lb was specially made for Edward Wesson, he painted on 140 lb, but that goggled a bit so he asked the factory if they could make it heavier and they made it, and thats why we still have it today! https://www.facebook.com/edohannemawatercolors/photos/p.1218197338317357/1218197338317357/?type=3 Brushes Pure Blue squirrel W&N size 4 and 6 The small orange one is a size 14 pure red sable nr 14 and it is 30 years old! The red flat one is a one stroke Sceptre brush 1/2" W&N I have a 1 and a 1.5" flat too from the same brand for many years now! Pigments are Rembrandt

Capturing Coastal Moods: Ray Balkwill

Ray takes us to some of his favourite haunts on the spectacular coastline of Cornwall and demonstrates his unique approach to painting using watercolour and pastel combined. Stunning locations include Porthleven Harbour, the estuary at Gweek and the rugged cliffs of Mullion Cove. He is a strong advocate of painting en plein air, his main objective being to capture the mood and ʻspiritʼ of a place. He also shows how sketching in charcoal plays a vital role in capturing the essence of a scene. Ray Balkwill, SWAc is a well-known West Country artist who paints in watercolours, pastels and oils. He is an Academician in the South West Academy of Fine and Applied Arts and also a member of the St Ives Society of Artists. He is author of seven books and a regular contributor to art magazines.

Classic Wesson Watercolour with Steve Hall

Following the success of his first Town House Films DVD - 'Watercolour the Wesson Way' - Steve Hall Returns to show you in detail how watercolour master Edward Wesson (1910 - 1983) painted some of his classic views, including Morston church in Norfolk, The Silent Pool and Thames sailing barges at Pin Mill. Steve takes five original Wessons from his own extensive collection and paints his own pictures of similar themes inspired by the Wesson originals. This DVD is shot in a teaching studio with Steve working mostly from photographs and sketches so you can see every brushstroke in five full demonstrations. This DVD is a must for Wesson fans.

pollard willows Other angle

Watercolour from Mechelen A other angle because I notice that the branches of the willow were made behind my hand! So this is maybe a nice one for who like to see them made! Millford paper Rembrandt pigments. Mechelen originated as a settlement around an estate that in 1215 was donated by Henry III, duke of Limburg to the Order of John. In the 14th century the glory came into the possession of the lord of Wittem, but a part of the village, together with the Commandery of the Order, remained an enclave within the glory. In 1579 and in 1588 the monastery and the farmstead were destroyed by fire, on which the Saint Johns left for Aachen in 1588. They have since leased their farm. All this came to an end in 1796. Mechelen became the main town of the municipality of Wittem, until the end of 1998 it was closed to form the municipality of Gulpen-Wittem together with Gulpen. In 1803 Mechelen separated itself as an independent parish from the parish of Wahlwiller. In the years that followed, Mechelen gradually became a ribbon village, while in the second half of the 20th century there were also some residential areas to the south of the core.

I begin with a sketch I made from a photo, and generally I work further from that sketch in watercolour in Edward Seago's style.

I used some brushes here that I normally seldom use.
The flat oxhair brushes are made for lettersetting art.

I usually have two red sable brushes a 6 and a 12 Da Vince Maestro Tobolski Kolinsky

Three W&N Squirrel wash brushes I used them a lot so I cannot see the size anymore
I have a huge Squirrel brush I seldom use and that is a size 10, so my guess would be I have a 2, 4 and 6 size squirrel brush. Also found under Petit Gris
Blue Squirrel brushes are the best, but also the most expensive!

And some riggers for detail, size 0, 1 and 4 W&N Sceptre Gold

I use a variety of papers, but in most cases StCuthbertsmill paper, like Bockingford, Millford and Saunders Waterford. when I do a style I try to use the painters choice! (when available)
