See the zoomable hires watercolor painting 'Gliding by' here: https://mike-jory.pixels.com/featured/west-wycombe-park-music-hall-folly-swans-lake-painting-mike-jory.html This week, inspired by episode 2 of Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year 2021, I take you through a real time demo of a watercolour painting of 2 swans on the lake at West Wycombe Park in Buckinghamshire in England. The painting is created using a little bit of sharpie marker and then the rest is done in impressionist watercolor, the swans are deliberately left partially transparent to reflect the idea that they are moving and we are just getting to glimpse a moment in time.
Materials: A2 The Langton watercolor paper, synthetic bruhses, large round mop; large, med and small flats and a small round. Winsor & Newton Professional Watercolours: French ultramarine and Cerulean blues, Alizarin crimson and Cadmium yellow light. Chroma titanium white interactive acrylic, Sharpie marker pens (light and medium blues) #LAOTY#LandscapeArtistoftheYear
