Nice job Yorky! The reason I'm interested in this project is because my grand father came from Huddersfield and these photos remind me of him. Love those photos. I still haven't decide which one I will use. I'm leaning toward the one with the square building on the left and the smaller building behind. Very quaint!

Very nice Doug!!! I joined...you talked me into it...I must be nuts!! :eek:

I think I'll go with the same pic you just painted...the round house. You got the roundness of the building really well...hope I can do as well. I will remember to mask out the white window panes though..thanks! :D

Is this a real "house" that someone lives or lived in?

Welcome to the forum Pampe - I can wait!

Kathy - I wish you could see it IRL - it's beautiful. I like the varying earth colours in the old sandstone walls - delicious!

Chris - I know you can do it :D

judwal - hi there! Huddersfield is on the Pennines about 25 miles north of here, and is full of character with many stone houses like these.

Patty - I applied some curved dashed lines as sort of brick courses before applying the main wash and the shadow, bearing in mind that due to perspective they curve up-wards much more at the top than at the bottom where they are nearly straight to the observer.

Look forward to seeing your paintings.

Well I started today....I must be a complete idiot because I picked what I call "the back yard shot"---The portrait style one

It's more difficult than I thought and having done about 50%, have just realized that I have one hell of a foreground to do...I hate foregrounds!

Will try .....but may end up cropping. :confused:

Yorky

Like stink on a warthog... I'm all over it. (Was watching Lion King 2 with Emily today)

Don't wear that foot out Doug. And it looks like we have a merry and eclectic gang of painters so far. I expect there will be lots of great results.

I think I may do more thatn one.... but not decided yet.

Lovely painting Dough :clap:... but isn't it cheating :D :evil:... I remember I saw it posted in the gallery last week ;)... I did not comment there, and I have at least to say that I like it... well done :clap:...

I joined the project and will try to paint two or three of the reference pics myself... may be this project will help me start painting again... it's almost a month that I haven't done anyhting...

Rod

Me too, Rod, but I warn you that foreground needs attention :D

I titled this photo "Village Life" in the RIL as I thought it encapsulated all that is good in a sleepy Yorkshire village taken from the countryside:

The church dominating the skyline, centre of all village life with generations of village folk (including my wife's ancestors) buried there.

The huddle of houses which have grown over the centuries from scattered farms and artisans' workshops.

The back gardens and smallholdings which are a source of food and pleasure for the villagers, and particularly the man digging in his vegetable patch on a Sunday morning, probably raising vegetables for the pot.

I know your painting will be a masterpiece, and look forward to seeing it.

You have GRADUALLY gotten bolder with color and the effects are quite pleasing

Thanks for this project Doug! I just had to paint this ref. image, because the man digging his allotment reminds me so much of my late Father-in-law! The photo is very blurry, I'll try to get a better photo tomorrow (that's why I put it in progress images).

Thanks Doug, I wanted to focus on the figure so I brought him closer, then added the buddleia since they grow everywhere! lol I struggled most with the middle ground, all those fences and walls and GREEN! :eek:

I decided to have a go at this. I havenít painted with watercolours since the early 90ís so I hope no one minds if I use oils or acrylics. I havenít painted a landscape since high school so Iím really keen to get started. I just hope I can do a good job with this.

http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/14-Sep-2004/13042-P1010025.jpg
I painted the paper with acrylic paint using a credit card, and I left it lumpy and bumpy then I painted my picture on with watercolor when that was dry I used sandpaper to add a bit more texture.
I hope you like it

Sharon - this is a lovely painting of a complicated street scene. You have got the sandstone walls and the sunny day off pat.

Well done! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Thanks, Doug. I am using the challenge images to practice painting the lovely stonework and bricks in these old buildings. Around New Hampshire we mostly tend to have low stone walls and old wooden barns with lots of texture in them. It is rare to see a stone building or even a brick one with lots of character like in the Wentworth pictures.

Fabulous image as is!! Extremely well drawn and you have the separations between those buildings just about perfect. I could walk through this image to the nearest pub! Why can't the foreground be just a few conveniently place tufts of grass? It might be a good start toward "loose". :)

John

Can you please tell me what YUPO is?

NHArtist6
09-18-2004, 12:57 PM
Maltman -
YUPO is a synthetic painting surface originally manufactured for advertising signs (eg, banners) because it allows for crisp edges and bright color reproduction. It has been available for artists in small quantities and sizes for several years and can be purchased from the usual art supply houses (Cheap Joes sells trial packages and all three weights in 20 x 26 inches and larger).

Its primary characteristic is that it does not absorb the paint (except for extreme stainers and then just a little bit.) This makes for really interesting textures and lots of frustration (at least initially). It also allows for easy removal of the paint (restoring the whites) and this can be useful for certain things. Hair driers can be used sparingly (particularly on the heavy weight version) to hasten drying of the paint,although air drying often creates the most interesting effects.

Here is a section of a painting where restoration of the whites allowed for "carving" the heads into the painting. There are more than a dozen heads in this painting and each was started with a rough blob of toned brown, allowed to dry, carved away as needed and then enhanced with darker values.
http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/18-Sep-2004/46784-African_Chorus_partial.jpg

The surface also allows for the full range of density of the paint, ie, you can go from faint, ethereal washes (with almost 100% transparency) all the way to pure pigment with (no transparency) but without the "cakey" appearance of W/C pigment on paper. It almost simulates oil paint in some cases.

Here are two examples or partial images using these chracteristics:

http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/18-Sep-2004/46784-Lamb_Cottage_partial_72.jpg



Here is a thread that I started many weeks ago that shows more YUPO's and lists some of the most important tips that I have learned about using YUPO. They were gleaned from others' experiences, often simply by searching on the word "YUPO" in the WC! forums.

http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=207059

If you click on my name above and list all my threads you will find more examples of YUPO's that I have done.

One's initial frustration with using YUPO eventually gives way to admiration of its unique characteristics. It is still an "outlaw" material and is not accepted in the American Watercolor Society shows.

I suggest that you search on the word "YUPO" and Carly Clement's demo as well as some others' experiences using the surface.

I have thought of doing a demo using this material but have not worked up the nerve or documented a painting sufficiently as yet!! Carly's demo will show you the possibilites.

Glad you like my picture. You ought to try this material some time! With your wonderful drawing abilities and YUPO's ability to show clear bright colors, the combination would be awesome!!

Thank you so much for spending the time to explain...I had never heard of the material before...it sounds interesting but maybe too challenging for me at the moment. You seem to have mastered it though, as those images are just great!

Starsprite
09-18-2004, 02:58 PM
Brian, I have tried the Yupo paper too. I got some free samples a year or more ago. It's great if you want to try to paint in a more loose style as it's rather hard to control - you really can't paint too tight with it. John has extraordinary control in this painting I think!

Patty. I don't know what it is about blue? My skies never photograph as I would like theme to and when I adjust in PSP it messes up everything else. Maybe someone can help us? Doug is great at adjusting things I know. But if I use my 'magination I can see what you have done, and you have done it well.

This is a very good painting. Not too many people have tackled this subject yet, although I may try it. The roundhouse perspective, shadowing and colours pose a bit of a challenge.

As for this, it's all good. You have certailny captured it all. The leaves at the top of the page are brilliant. I am surprised Patty, that you have not invoked the term "gloaming" here, as that is what this painting tells me. I have taken it to photoshop and found the moon and stars which you lost here. Good work... now on to the next one.

As always, fondest regards,
Chris

Well MoonPixie, living up to your name I see.

As you stated, I'm sure the colours aren't right but I can see what you were doing.\
Of all the paintings I've done (or attempted) I have never tried a night scene and ,to tell the truth I wouldn't know where to start.

This is good. My only criticism would be the right side seems a little redundant...maybe a slight crop . This would also bring the Roundhouse into a more predominant location.

Now as a good caddy I have to agree with everything Chris suggests, so go pick another one!...I have!

Starsprite
09-19-2004, 10:22 PM
Thanks for your kind remarks, Chris, John and Brian!! :)
I know that the top of the roundhouse building is out of whack, but I decided to just leave it like that and make it look a bit more old and rugged, kind of like it's falling apart. :D

Dang it!! I meant to say something about it being the gloaming time of night...but I forgot! That's exactly what I thought too, Chris!

I will try another one now........ onward!

I liked it... liked the wet in wet shadows on the ground and the tree branches and leaves on the sky... the building may seem a bit ruined :) but it looks nice with the brick texture...

I think that if flash is used while taking the photo, the paints change color a lot... they fluoresce (if that's the correct werb) in a sense...

http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/Projects/lib/739/completed/46818/tn_project_yorkshirevillage.jpg

I took a few liberties...made the upper windows more oval so they'd match the round window below (silly, I know, but a face and a dunce cap were the first things I thought of when I saw the photo - I really had to restrain myself from painting eyeballs in each of the upper windows)...eliminated the livestock and added a cattail for balance...made the sky a bit more dramatic.

I'm finally beginning to get the hang of skies, I think. Still not perfect but not the disaster most of my previous efforts have been! This is the first time I've tried this approach to the sky. What I did was paint in a graduated cerulean blue wash, waited for it to dry, scrubbed out the clouds with really wet tissues, then came back in with a very very light quin rose wash over the bottom 3/4 of the clouds and the sky below them (all the way to the ground in the case of the lowest bank). After that dried I went in with an almost dry brush with a bit of UB for the shadows along the bottoms. I'm sure this is old hat to most of you, but I was pretty stoked :)

I'm fairly happy with most of the foliage - still having problem with evergreen trees though. I grew up in the CO rockies - you'd think that would be the one tree I could paint well... :) I still feel like I'm painting too "tight" for watercolor - the trees took a good two hours and are made up of hundreds of strokes. I've seen other folks do watercolor trees that look as good or better in about two minutes, seems like. :(

C&C welcome.

I like these vibrant colors. YUPO must be interesting material - this looks almost like it's painted on a translucent material and then backlit.

That's my version of the Wentworth Roundhouse...

I did it on a 11"x15" Bockingford 300gsm paper with Russian art-gamma pan paints (I guess they are also the manufacturer of Yarka St Petersburg paints)...

well, as usual :D I am not happy with this one too, but I think this is by far the best trees and greenery I have painted :rolleyes:...

PS. as it is allowed in projects, I am uploading my images a little larger then those in the gallery to be able to see some of the details better... I hope you don't bother...

Hey Vasil..don't be so hard on yourself....this is pretty darn good!! Great round house and fence, folliage great, especially the top tree limbs! The only thing I think needs work is your sky. Try using a damp brush to go around the edge of the clouds to make them appear softer. Your windows are great!!!! :)

No, I used a small sea sponge for the trees, dampening it and dipping it in the paint and applying, and then went over them with a round brush in places.

Thanks, I credit you and Arnold for getting me pointed in the right direction on skies. I've still got a long ways to go, but at least I'm thinking about them now instead of slopping paint about and crossing my fingers. :)

I think the toughest thing for me in getting the hang of watercolors is thinking about the order I'm going to do things in. When I painted with acrylics years ago I tended to work sections of the painting without much regard for the colors in use. Now I find myself driving to work looking at the sunrise and thinking, "okay, what order do I need to do things in to get that effect in watercolor?"

Thanks Lighthouser! None of the above, in answer to your question about my trees. LOL :D I used a damp sea sponge to apply paint randomly then went over it with a damp round brush by rolling it on it's side.... made a lighter green with what I had already and did the same thing with the brush.

My church steeple looks like a clown face too. I do like my cows and sheep though and the grassy areas and sky, so I must be improving. :)

Nice greens, the sky is intense and sets the tone for the greens. (I'm sure thats a pig grazing in the mid-ground) Well done.

Well, I'm still trying to "loosen up." Judging by the wonky windows I think I loosened up a little too much on this one. I wasn't going to post it but, hey, we're all friends here, right? :)

What a dramatic night time sky. Well done. The round bit looks round and those windows are so difficult to get right, I gave up too.

You can use cad yellow, for greens but it is opaque and so you lose the transparancy, I just forgot.

Thanks for the (to) kind comments all.

Patty - Arnold Lowrey posted an article on wet in wet, vs dry in wet, etc. over in the forum a week or so ago and that one post made about a thousand percent difference in my skies - I was trying to do everything wet in wet in really wet and wondering why I always ended up with mud. :)

I did sort of achieve my goal of "casting" a little light from the windows on nearby bushes and such - but I'd be a lot happier with the windows in this if they weren't all cattywampus :)

Well it does look like you moved this Yorkshire house to France. That type of light only shines in Yorkshire once a year. I like the yupo effect, I can't handle Blockingford yet, so will give that a miss for a while.

The paint is handle masterfully, and the brush strokes are clean and clear, thats good for watercolour!

Kevin: very nice rendition of a challenging subject, and the add ons are pretty creative. You should be please with this one.

Is it common over there to have steps over the stone walls? I have seen similar things in photos and was curious?

Thanks for looking and commenting, Doug and Chris. The walls with the gaps in or 'stiles' are found all over this country, they form part of the public right of way on public footpaths. The upkeep is a burden the landowner has to ensure, although lots of walking & trekking organisations help.........I think. I know you like your poems and nursey rhymes heres one with stile in it.

There was a crooked man
who walked a crooked mile
He had a crooked sixpence,
and climbed a crooked stile.............I think!!

What a unique approach to a foreground that, when I was painting it,found boring and difficult.
Wonderful job...but I thought you Lancashire lads put up much bigger walls to keep the "t'other sides of 'pennines " ..out!

It's beautiful, Brian - wow! half sheet!

Wonderful detail on the church.

Why not upload it to the project, let it take its place amongst the others?

Brian, the Project system always works the same way - on the first post there is a link to the project where you can read the details and upload your progress and final paintings. This creates the thumbnails etc.

Here's a link (http://www.wetcanvas.com//Community/Projects/index.php?cmd=view_details&proj_id=739) to the page.

Thanks for the comment, Brian - you did very well with the photo I provided. This was a shot taken at 10X zoom from aroun half a mile away.

Doug EDIT: Didn't work the usual way - no thumbnail was generated! I wonder if the Project system has beenamended?

Beautifully drawn and executed. This has such a "crispness" to it. Like it very much

Well Brian, you managed to move to Yorkshire, why not Italy? It's funny isn't it the things we get hung up upon? I like the way you handled your sky, and yet if I had painted it I just would not have been happy with all the hard lines, I would have been washing back, and ruining the simplicity of it. The trees are your trees all the way from Quebec, just lovely. Thanks for joining us.

Just an aside, how come Brian get a full display and we all get a thumbnail? Could it be that he had uploaded the picture first, and then went into the project later?
