Simple watercolor painting demonstration of boats and water

Simple watercolor painting of boats and water
This is my latest demonstration for relatively new watercolor artists. It covers various watercolor painting techniques such as wet on wet and wet on dry as well as dry brush.

Subjects such as the drawing of simple boats and perspective are also covered.

The location of this scene is Pittwater a beautiful Sydney, Australia, coastal suburb and is based on a photo I took early one morning.

The painting is only about 7" x 5" but for the more experienced artists could certainly be painted larger - however for the beginner watercolorist I recommend sticking to this smaller dimension.

The demonstration can be found on my Painting With Watercolor site.

Happy painting,

Watercolor Painting Sunrise over The Three Sisters, Blue Mountains, Australia

Sunrise over The Three Sisters, Blue Mountians, Australia

Here is my latest watercolour painting. I think the title tells you all about it really. I particularly like this type of scene and feel it is just made for watercolour. It is mostly a wet on wet painting with warm and cool colours flowing into one another. The dark silhouette of the three sisters helps add to the feeling of space in the painting. As soon as I saw the scene I new I had to paint it!
The Three Sisters are a rock outcrop in the Blue Mountains, just outside of Sydney, Australia.
The painting’s dimensions are 56cm x 18 cm. It was painted on Arches Cold Press, 300 g.s.m. paper.
At some point I will post it as a demonstration on my Painting With Watercolors website, but not for a while as I need to wrap up a few other projects first.
Happy painting,

Latest watercolor landscape painting demonstration of a river scene

I have just finished posting my latest watercolor landscape painting demonstration. It is of the Grose river watercolor painting I posted a couple of weeks ago.

If you would like to have a look at it you can find it here: watercolor river landscape painting of the Grose river.
