Experimental Watercolour Workshop- NEW DVD

My new dvd is based on some of the contents of my ‘Watercolour Workshop’ book which was published last year. It reinforces the book and vice versa with new interpretations and techniques. It isn’t necessary to have both though in order to benefit from their ideas. They are independent of each other. I took subjects for the film that had not already been demonstrated as step by steps in the book and explain in the film how each interpretation can be unique and different depending on how you mix and choose the ‘ingredients’. It continues the theme of experimentation as a way to develop your artwork and loosen up your approach.

I painted a new version of the Lavender field and Cowparsley used for the cover of the book – and was pleased with the way the watercolour formed ‘happy accidents’ and had a real energy. I had painted an interpretation as a kind of ‘dress rehearsal’ before I painted in front of the camera as I needed to loosen up before starting . Performing to camera is pretty scary stuff but my practise piece paid off because the demonstration version had an energy, that was perhaps lacking in my first , unfilmed attempt. I added collage to the watercolour beginning, explaining how this optional progression could change the direction of your watercolours.

Other demonstrations include a frothy Spring hawthorn and an atmospheric evening river scene. There are lots of ideas and thoughts behind the pictures and I hope if you get to see it you will be inspired to get your paints out and explore!

‘Experimental Watercolour Workshop’ dvd is now available to pre-order from the shop. Publication date is May 1st 2019 and any ordered before that date will be sent after publication.
