Watercolour in the style of Edward Wesson

I saw a photo on Twitter, made by my good friend Claire Hill, so I asked if I could use it for a painting and Claire said yes have a go! The scene is excellent material to make a sort of Edward Wesson painting from. I admire Mr Wesson a lot and have almost all his books. 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 it seems, he painted on 140lb, 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! The finished painting can be seen here on flickr https://flic.kr/p/252j3Qx Edward Wesson Colours used Raw SIenna Alizarin Crimson Ultramarine Blue Winsor Blue or Phtalo Blue New Gamboge Burnt Sienna and Burnt Umber Light Red I use Rembrandt pigments, I am sure Wesson used W&N or Daler Rowney! Brushes 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! http://www.winsornewton.com/uk/shop/brushes/water-colour/professional-water-colour-squirrel-brushes/pure-squirel-pointed-wash-brush-pure-squirrel-pointed-wash-brushes-size-10-brush-5250310 And some riggers for detail, size 0, 1 and 4 W&N Sceptre Gold Paper 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)

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

Edward Seago: A collection of 77 paintings (HD)

Edward Seago: A collection of 77 paintings (HD) Description: "Edward Seago enjoyed the position as one of the most popular British artists of the 20th century. He began painting at the age of seven when he was confined to his room with a heart condition. Later, fully recovered, he would study with Bernard Priestman. He became a successful illustrator in the 1930's, working for, among others, England's poet laureate of the sea, John Masefield. After serving with the royal engineers in WWII, he would spend the remainder of his life painting and writing. He was an avid sailor which is evident in the accuracy and flavor of his sea paintings. Exhibiting widely, his famous one man shows at Colnaghi's would usually sell out on the first day. People were known to line up by 6 am to secure the painting of their choice. Examination of Seago's work shows the influence of the Dutch 17th century school and British artists such as John Constable. His two greatest influences however were the French impressionist Eugene Boudin and American painter James McNeil Whistler." --- SUBSCRIBE: www.youtube.com/c/LearnFromMasters?sub_confirmation=1 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LearnFromMasters/ Google+: https://plus.google.com/+LearnFromMasters Contact: LearnFromMasters01@gmail.com SUPPORT MY WORK AT: https://www.patreon.com/LearnFromMasters --- Thank you so much for your support!

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
