Edward Seago enthusiast, Norman Teeling paints Emmet Square in Clonakilty, Co. Cork in plein air. This is the second of his paintings for his new "Painting in Plein Air" DVD and is also complimented by a beautiful selection of tunes from his CD "Jazzin' The Shadows" If anyone has ever ventured into the GPO in O'Connell street Dublin City, they would surely have seen the one by one and a half metre paintings of the Easter Rising in 1916. These paintings were a commission Norman undertook in the late eighties. his passion for art never ceases! So it is with his music. He loves all styles and as with art he interprets it as he feel it! This is what he felt as he played these tracks at the time, The Shadows with a jazzy feel!! As a result the album "JAZZING THE SHADOWS" was born! Here are four more of the tracks. Norman opens and closes APACHE on a flute and everything inbetween was done on my '82 Stratocaster. The third tune, THE SAVAGE was also played on the same guitar, but with an unbelievable array of sounds and styles, (Time to hang up my boots I think!!) NIVRAM (No2) and FLINGLEBUNT (No4) Norman plays in the Gypsy Jazz style of our hero, Hank Marvin, on his Maccaferri Toledo I was honoured to back him on rhythm, bass and programming the drum tracks, Recording mixing and producing the CD and in the process of the DVD For enquiries on his Art you can email Norman at normanteelingartist@gmail.com For enquiries on video production email blueshadows2008@gmail.com

A typical Dutch Landscape on Millford paper

I paint a typical Dutch landscape from scratch, every brushstroke is here! I made only a small mistake, I mixed Cobalt Blue with Burnt Sienna in the beginning, not Alizarine! sorry for that! But I am a Dutch guy trying to speak English. ;-) If you like it please give me the thumbs up, because you tube works that way! how more thumbs how more I am visible to the watercolour lovers! Thanks in advance. best wishes Edo I paint on a quarter sheet Millford 140 lb lb made by StCuthbertsmill Its really a nice paper to paint on! colours Cobalt Blue Ultramarine Blue Raw Sienna Burnt SIenna

Advancing with Watercolor: Unity "Winter Thaw"

This is a video done as a supplement to a watercolor class taught by Gary Tucker in Boston. This video starts with a short discussion on unity and the value of a center of interest. work was done with 140lb rough paper, cad yellow light, lavender, cad orange, cad red, and ult blue and neutral tint and a series of small and large mop brushes. Thank you for liking this short video and for your comments. You can down a pdf that accompanies this video by going to my site at http://www.garytuckerartist.com/gallery/2018/03/05/winter-thaw/

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.

Colours used
Yellow Ocher or Raw SIenna
Alizarin Crimson
Ultramarine Blue
Aureolin yellow because Chrome Yellow don’t exist anymore!
Burnt Sienna and Burnt Umber
Light Red


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)
