ISLAND LIFE – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

Watching the TV the other day I saw a scene which reminded me of an image I have in a book on the Algonquin National Park in Canada. I thought I might combine aspects of the images. The sense of stillness and isolation appealed to me – perhaps something I might see in our Lake District in England: maybe it’s my age or situation.

TAKING IN THE VIEW 2 – ACRYLIC PAINTING

P1040564a

Taking a break from my series of watercolours, I thought that I would do something with acrylics. I have to give an acrylic painting  demonstration in Blackpool next week and decided to feature this piece which I posted on my blog some years ago.  It is done with square brushes to block in colour and, hopefully, encourages looseness and produces a more painterly piece, which some people prefer. I like to have a run through of a demonstration  to ensure that I can complete it in the allotted time and this one is a bit bigger than the normal size I demonstrate.
