‘Sea Wave Plein Air’
This is my second plein air painting of the English coast in Brighton, England.
This time I walked up to the shore and decided to have a go at painting the waves.
There was a big dark cloud to my right which did eventually move in my direction. It did rain over me but not enough to stop the painting. So I got this finished on location and I was happy with the result.
Because of the weather, I had this entire section of the beach to myself!
Right!! Listen up everyone!
The opening night for my exhibition 'Take me back to Cornwall' is on the 9th June 2020 between 7-9pm.
There will be bubbly and snacks!
The paintings will be there to purchase and there will be prints and greeting cards available too. I hope to see you there!!! Im so excited! Please share and share and share 😁
Happy to say my application to @printfestulverston has been accepted and I'll be back at this wonderful event 1-3 May. Here's a shot from my stand last year. Wonder if I can squeeze anything else on the wall this year 😄
Illuminated horizons, achieved by letting the paint run toward the horizon (by tilting the page) and letting the darker colors from the foreground push the lighter ones upward—it's all wet in wet. This gives the very subtle appearance that light is shining through the forest from behind the trees. The eye might not immediately perceive that, but it does see the depth in the painting! || You may have caught on to this but I have been raging busy building my Instagram course (which is now a more heart-centered approach to teaching artists about their role on Instagram) as well as all ten brand new watercolor courses. I hope to launch all of them on the January 31st if not a few days later.

*Fresh off the Easel*
Autumn trees cut out crystalline light patterns in the cool sky above, while the low sun casts dramatic shadows across the landscape. This painting was inspired by Zion National Park in southern Utah.

The larger one is called "Peace of Mind" and the depth and emotion it captures makes it so precious to me. I have ideas for how to refine this technique and hope to attempt a painting like this again in the near future! Watercolor is oh so tricky for anticipating those lighter areas ahead of time will still going at it with looseness and freedom.

One of my all time favorite techniques is working with warm and cool colors in the same painting. There's a really method to it that prevents the whole thing from turning into a muddy mess. When my Online Classroom re-launches, I will be offering a course on this method! || Last winter I worked with it a ton and some of the pieces that I made during that flow are still my favorites.
