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

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


 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.

Belted galloway cows on the beach surreal watercolour painting


 'Belties at Budleigh' see the finished painting here: https://mike-jory.pixels.com/featured/belted-galloway-cow-at-budleigh-salterton-beach-painting-mike-jory.html
This week, I paint some belted galloway cows on the pebble beach at Budleigh Salterton in Devon, England to create a surreal watercolor painting. For the first part of the painting, created while sitting on the beach, working plein air, I used watercolour to capture and enhance the vibrant colours in the tree-topped red cliffs of the Jurassic Coast. Then, once I returned to the studio, I continued using watercolor paint along with some watercolour marker pens to add a surreal element to the painting, three belted galloway cattle are added to the scene, one at the water's edge, one actually standing on the water, and the main beltie in the foreground actually standing beyond the edges of the scene!
Materials used:
Winsor and Newton Professional Watercolours: Alizarin Crimson, French Ultramarine Blue, Cadmium Yellow Light, Burnt Umber, Neutral Tint. Spectrum Noir Watercolour Marker Pens (Peacock Blue). Chroma atelier interactive acrylic titanium white. Daler Rowney A2 mixed media paper

Esta semana, pinto algunas vacas galloway con cinturón en la playa de guijarros de Budleigh Salterton en Devon, Inglaterra, para crear una pintura de acuarela surrealista. Para la primera parte de la pintura, creada mientras estaba sentado en la playa, trabajando al aire libre, utilicé acuarela para capturar y realzar los colores vibrantes en los acantilados rojos cubiertos de árboles de la Costa Jurásica. Luego, una vez que regresé al estudio, continué usando pintura de acuarela junto con algunos rotuladores de acuarela para agregar un elemento surrealista a la pintura, se agregan tres ganado galloway con cinturón a la escena, uno en la orilla del agua, uno realmente parado en el agua, ¡y el cinturón principal en primer plano realmente parado más allá de los bordes de la escena!
本周,我在英格兰德文郡Budleigh Salterton的卵石海滩上画了一些腰带盖洛威牛,以创作超现实的水彩画。 对于这幅画的第一部分,它是坐在沙滩上,在柔和的空气中创作的,我用水彩画捕捉并增强了侏罗纪海岸树顶红色悬崖上鲜艳的色彩。 然后,回到工作室后,我继续使用水彩颜料和一些水彩笔在画中添加了超现实的元素,在场景中添加了三头带腰带的盖洛韦牛,其中一头位于水边,另一头实际上站在水边。 水,前景中的主要腰带实际上站在场景的边缘之外!
Diese Woche male ich einige Galloway-Kühe mit Gürtel am Kieselstrand von Budleigh Salterton in Devon, England, um ein surreales Aquarell zu schaffen. Für den ersten Teil des Gemäldes, das ich am Strand im Freien erstellt habe, habe ich Aquarell verwendet, um die leuchtenden Farben in den baumbestandenen roten Klippen der Juraküste einzufangen und zu verbessern. Als ich dann ins Studio zurückkehrte, verwendete ich weiterhin Aquarellfarbe zusammen mit einigen Aquarellmarkierungsstiften, um dem Gemälde ein surreales Element hinzuzufügen. Der Szene wurden drei Galloway-Rinder mit Gürtel hinzugefügt, eines am Wasser, eines tatsächlich auf dem Wasser und der Hauptgürtel im Vordergrund stehen tatsächlich hinter den Rändern der Szene!
Cette semaine, je peins des vaches Galloway ceinturées sur la plage de galets de Budleigh Salterton dans le Devon, en Angleterre, pour créer une aquarelle surréaliste. Pour la première partie de la peinture, créée alors que j'étais assis sur la plage, travaillant en plein air, j'ai utilisé l'aquarelle pour capturer et améliorer les couleurs vibrantes des falaises rouges surmontées d'arbres de la côte jurassique. Puis, une fois de retour au studio, j'ai continué à utiliser de la peinture à l'aquarelle avec quelques marqueurs aquarelle pour ajouter un élément surréaliste à la peinture, trois bovins galloway ceinturés sont ajoutés à la scène, un au bord de l'eau, un debout sur le l'eau, et la ceinture principale au premier plan se tenant au-delà des bords de la scène!
Den här veckan målar jag några galloway-kor med bälte på stenstranden vid Budleigh Salterton i Devon, England för att skapa en surrealistisk akvarellmålning. För den första delen av målningen, skapad när jag satt på stranden och arbetade plein air, använde jag akvarell för att fånga och förstärka de livfulla färgerna i de röda klipporna på Jurassic Coast. När jag väl återvände till studion fortsatte jag med att använda vattenfärgfärg tillsammans med några vattenfärgpennor för att lägga till ett surrealistiskt element i målningen, tre bältade galloway-nötkreatur läggs till på scenen, en vid vattnet, en som faktiskt står på vatten och huvudbandet i förgrunden som faktiskt står utanför scenens kanter!
