WATERCOLOUR DEMONSTRATION

 

This commission required two fishing boats, 'Delta Dawn' and 'Harvester', moored by the Arun View Hotel in Littlehampton. Several photographs were taken to record the detail of the two boats and the background. Then some preliminary thumbnail sketches were made to decide on the composition and very importantly, what to leave out! A lot of the background detail has to be removed to avoid an over cluttered picture.

Picture 1, Detail from the initial freehand drawing also showing the first sky wash:

 

Picture 2, More washes applied......

Picture 3, More work in the middle distance, ignoring the foreground.

Picture 4, The detail is now added in the foreground, including the boats, but not the water.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Picture 5, The finished painting, complete with washline mount and distressed gilt frame.
