The Sunday Art Show - En Plein Air Seascape Paintings

The Sunday Art Show - En Plein Air Seascape Paintings

This week, I'm back down at Fistral beach in Cornwall to do some en plein air paintings using acrylic. In this video, I go through a painting from start to finish in real time while sat on the beach and also chat about the other paintings I created on the same day. Had a brilliant time in the sunshine taking in the sea air! Hope you enjoy this week's episode of the Sunday Art Show.





 

The Sunday Art Show - Watercolour and acrylic - Deer painting - Perfectly Poised

August 5th, 2018

The Sunday Art Show - Watercolour and acrylic - Deer painting - Perfectly Poised

This week it's a real time video of a mixed media, watercolour and acrylic painting of a deer with antlers standing with perfect graceful posture, alert yet relaxed in a woodland glade perhaps. Prussian blue watercolour marker was used to create a gestural line drawing of the deer, then more watercolour lines, dragged through with a clean wet brush introduced soft-edged patches of background colour. Next, acrylic paint was added to the deer to provide bold shadows, light and form in contrast to the gentler background. Hope you enjoy the creation of this vividly coloured, impressionist style deer painting.

The Sunday Art Show - Drawing Seagulls - En Plein Air

This week, I am down in Cornwall at Fistral beach when I notice a couple of seagulls have landed next to me. I quickly start on an en plein air, race against time as I sketch these birds with a combination of watercolour and acrylic. Filmed using a go pro style camera attached to my head, you can see what I saw at each stage of the drawing in this real time video.

The Sunday Art Show - En Plein Air Painting - Standing in the sea

Had an amazing day at Dawlish Warren beach, painting en plein air the view across the water while standing in the sea. This was so enjoyable and relaxing, like having a 3 week holiday compressed into an afternoon! See the acrylic landscape / seascape painting come to life in real time!

The Sunday Art Show - Herd of cows drawing tutorial - purple cows on a bag

The Sunday Art Show - Herd of cows drawing tutorial - purple cows on a bag

In this week's episode, I use mixed media to draw a herd of friesian cows. However, these are rather unusual in that I depict them with bright purple! Starting with a prussian blue acrylic paint marker, I do some loose gestural drawing to place the cows in the field, letting the lines freely wander to create a sense of movement and expression. Next, a mauve watercolour marker is used to block in the dark areas of each cow. Following this, a wet but clean flat brush is lightly dragged through the purple patches to create more subtle shadows and areas of texture. Finally, I preview the design on a tote bag.

The Sunday Art Show - English beach scene painting tutorial - real time video

The Sunday Art Show - English beach scene painting tutorial - real time video

This week, I take a visit to Sidmouth on the south coast of Devon, England and use the view to inspire an English beach scene panting tutorial. This real time video of how to paint a coastal scene uses a combination of watercolor marker pens and atelier interactive acrylics to create a vibrant Devon beach scene featuring red cliffs, purple and blue sea, wet sand and a few people walking along the beach. Finally, I show 3 different ways to frame the same painting. You can check out the 3 different versions here (click on the image for a high resolution close-up of the brushwork)

The Sunday Art Show Cow Painting Tutorial Mixed Media Experiment

This week, I try a mixed media experiment to draw a friesian cow using watercolour marker pens, then take a clean wet brush to move the paint around, spray the paint with water to create effects, then use interactive acrylic paint to fill in the background and put some highlights on the cow. See you next week, for the next episode of the Sunday Art Show.

The Sunday Art Show  Sheep and Landscape painting tutorial  lying down in the English countryside

In this week's episode of the Sunday Art Show, I use Atelier Interactive acrylics to paint a sheep lying down in the English countryside. Inspired by a flock on the edge of Exeter in Devon, thin washes are used to suggest background hills and hedgerows, then thicker paint is used for the foreground grass and sheep that includes a wider range of colours and textures. See you next Sunday for the next episode of the Sunday Art Show! :-)
