Thanks jean for the refs

I wanted to use one this weekend to test out my new toys - the Art Bars by Derwent.

I also wanted to do a piece as normal so I did one as a demo and one as a watercolour.

I've done 2 pieces.......


This one was done as a demo WIP so apologies I have no timing as I kept stopping to take photos as I went.

'Ontario Garden Centre'
A3 SAA 300gsm watercolour paper
Derwent Art Bar

Thanks for hosting jean and for the nostalgic view of Conway.

Cool demo....they sound like a lot of work but you seem to have a good grasp on them!!
Really like the second painting....what did you use to outline your original sketch?

Loved your demo - it turned out great and good to see the struggle. RTiver in Wales is great too - I think Valri asked about the outlines on this one, cos I wondered too.

on the river one - I drew with a graphite pencil - and a ruler to get perspective right. I use a large piece of paper to mark points. I use White Ink for the white bits in the river. I painted over the shape of the house with my 'old faithful' brush - just one i bought from behind the counter of my art group it's an ordinary brush and about a size 6 but the paint has dropped so can't see- it is very controllable and can do fine detail. I didn't pre-draw the windows at all all I did was paint the frames with undilited white gouache

For the Demo piece to save time I traced and transferred so I could devote the time to the demo of the Art bars :o :evil: :eek: - just for speed. I prefer to draw freehand. But I needed to get down and get on with it and jump in with the Art Bars

I like the way the first turned out and it was good to see the steps it went through.

The second is lovely too, fresh.

You've worked hard this w/end Lin - deserve a break!:lol:
