This week, I paint Chartwell House in England using watercolor and a little ballpoint pen. You can see the finished painting here: https://mike-jory.pixels.com/featured/charwell-house-england-watercolor-painting-mike-jory.html In this real-time demo, I begin with a very loose application of watercolour and then gradually define areas of light and dark. Next, I add a few biro lines to include some minimalist drawing. The finishing stages include adding more watercolor and biro to enhance the texture and detail. Enjoyed creating this watercolor painting of a large house in the English countryside.
