 This week, I take you through a real-time demo of a painting of four black cattle. These 4 steer were encountered in a field on the outskirts of Exeter in Devon, Uk and I was struck by the multitude of colors in their gleaming coats along with the ever-changing patterns they created as the herd moves around. Cow paintings (well these are steer actually) are one of my favourite subjects, I hope that you enjoy the video!

Lost and found edges in impressionist watercolor painting of a restaurant interior

January 31st, 2021

Lost and found edges in impressionist watercolor painting of a restaurant interior


 'This place is really popular' - check out the finished watercolor painting of this restaurant interior here: https://mike-jory.pixels.com/featured/restaurant-painting-loose-impressionist-watercolor-watercolour-painting-mike-jory.html
In this week's Sunday Art Show, I take you through a real-time demo of how to use watercolour to create a loose and lively restaurant interior painting. Watercolor is applied in fluid washes taking account of the big shapes in the scene, working from light to dark. As these washes mingle, colour mixing effects and naturally occurring edges are created. Once dry, a ball point pen is used to add defining line work in key areas. Some areas are deliberately left untouched. Then, more opaque watercolor paint is added to enhance the contrast and some detail here and there to create and energetic impressionist scene fully of the buzz of a busy lunch time.
Materials used: A3 The Langton watercolour paper, synthetic brushes, Winsor and Newton professional watercolours: Alizarin Crimson, French Ultrmarine Blue, Cadmium Yellow Light, Burnt Umber, Neutral Tint and a blue biro.

Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year - Chartwell House - Episode 1

Sky Arts Landscape Artist of the Year - Chartwell House - Episode 1


 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.
Materials used: A2 The Langton textured watercolor paper; Winsor and Newton Professional watercolour paints: Cerulean blue, French ultramarine blue, Alizarin crimson, Cadmium red, Cadmium yellow light, Neutral tint; Brushes are all synthetic: Jackson's Raven No 6 Round Mop; Artdiscount own brand small round, generic flat approx half inch wide, Princeton Neptune 1" oval wash; Matthew Palmer branch and detail brush (small) and a No 1 rigger by Daler Rowney; Ball point pens are just random biros I had: dark blue and a light blue.
