SUNSHINE IN AINSDALE WOODS – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

P1040590(1)a

I apologise for another version of sunlight through trees on consecutive blogs, but in mitigation they are in different media.

I mentioned in previous blogs about walking with a group of French visitors who had come to Southport. On the Saturday we had a sunny walk, taking lunch on the beach at Formby.  I posted a painting I did of the scene on 24th October. This is another painting based on views I saw, that day, on our way to lunch, walking through the woods to Formby and then on to the beach. I have done another, very different version of  these woods. I’ll post that in my next blog.

I tried to keep this painting very loose; spraying the paper with water and then throwing paint into the dampened area after which I then drew into and painted with a brush. As I was building up layers of paint I spayed in masking fluid both on dry and damp paper at differing times of painting, so the masking fluid covered different colours and tones.

Other scenes of Southport, Liverpool and Formby are available for sale on my website: grahammcquadefineart.com

  1. How do you spray the masking fluid Graham? did you splatter it or was it in a sprayer. It always gums up the brush (though I put a little oil soap in there before using and that helps. You are so masterful with watercolors, this is a great effect with all the layers.
