ART CLASS
AIMS
Painting in watercolour is like an adventurer's quest, take one path and you will discover brilliant, gem-like colours, another path will lead you into a mire of colourless mud. The difference is knowing how watercolour works and how different pigments react when mixed together.
This journey of discovery can be one of joy if carried out with a fun outlook and in a structured way.
I hope, that here, beginners will find guidance - away from the mire and muddy path, armed with newly aquired knowledge of well tried and practical techniques.
Gradually building up the skills and confidence necessary to create those magical atmospheric results over which the medium of watercolour, reigns supreme, in this realm where colours can glow..

Hello and welcome to my WatercolourClass pages




This website was not active for most of the first 18 months after I moved from England
in January 2013 to live in the USA - During that time
I was acting like a retired senior citizen, which in fact I was and still am.
With loads of things to do other, than sitting at a computer.
California is a very relaxing place to live .

Payment for membership with access to the site's content was not
possible until mid 2014.
It has now changed again, the company that hosts this and all my web-sites.
has upgraded its many available scripts and apps.
The very basic method of password protecting access to all the members pages, is no longer
included in the available list of options.
The reason for creating this web-site was linked to the three art-classes I used
to take every week allowing the students to stay informed of the class projects progress.


Administering the site is not automated, it is very hands on, so my response to your payment
or emails may occasionally take longer than 24 hours especially if I am on a photographic trip
or if family from England are visiting.

I have some Ideas for new projects and I will probably also totally
re-Hash the site.
Call back soon to see how it's coming along.
I created a new personal site detailing the area I'm now living in
It's called Finding Fair Oaks



These few web-pages, which are based on my watercolour class projects, show most of the watercolour paintings we managed to complete during the last 8 years of classes.
Here also are a few useful tips on how to successfully tackle the initial and very important drawing stage.
The examples can be downloaded as free pictures from the web-pages and printed off for your own use.
Good quality pencils are recommended, 1B or 2B. Though continually having to resharpen can be tedious.
Keep your pencil sharp and use the minimum of pressure to very lightly draw a grid to suit the size of your own watercolour paper, it will then be relatively easy to copy the image square by square.
A sharp pencil* and a light touch is good practice especially when roughing out your drawing.
Do not erase the grid lines until the painting is finished and totally dry. The reason will be explained later!
If you need to erase errors in your drawing, a clean piece of blue-tack (or white-tack) dabbed or gently rolled over the pencil line should remove sufficient of the graphite to give a satisfactory result. Remember always avoid excess pressure.
A sharp pencil*
STAEDTLER graphite 779 - holder with 0.5mm HB refills
This is the pencil I've been using for the past 12 months, it never needs sharpening, though it takes a little getting used to, holding it so that it is almost at right-angles to the paper and a 3mm max' projection of lead, reduces the potential for breaking the lead refills. I never use any other pencil

PAINTING OLD BRICKWORK:
Here are two video clips made while painting a commission of an old country cottage. One is of old irregular brickwork and the other is a simple sky that doesn't detract from the overall picture.

PAINTING A FLAT WASH:
The beginner's nightmare - what is the secret of painting a flat wash and changing colour half way through, without getting streaks and cauliflowers??
One of the projects below covers this thorny problem - but because it is so important and intrinsically necessary to get to grips with this basic requirement, I've decided to cover it in the free pages, so you can access this secret now as an introduction to the website. Click on the curtain of colour link below.
THE CURTAIN OF COLOUR TECHNIQUE

Project~Links: these take you to the class projects, originally designed and intended for class members to download and print off for their own personal use in my classes.
Each image has two formats. The 1st. image, the primary drawing is A4 size overlaid with a 3x4 square grid layout. The 2nd. image is usually the finished picture, though occasionally 2 or 3 progressive stages are included, providing each student with a personal reference and colour notes.
PTP's (Private Tuition Pages) are for paying members and require a username and password to access the information and images, these are available at the weekly classes, via e-mail or over the phone.

Please Note members only pages will continue
to be available during the upgrade:

At this stage not all of the member's pages
contain completed instructions for colour mixes
and methods of application,
however, the projects do have all the relevant pictures.
I understand how frustrating it can be when, having chosen a project to embark on
to find the instructions are incomplete.
There are two points of view I hear
the first is to make the site unavailable and no-one will be disappointed,
the second is leave it while trying to complete some of the unfinished projects.
Because many members still enjoy the projects as the various stages are shown with
relevant images in place and some basic colors being indicated.

TRACING YOUR DRAWING ONTO WATERCOLOUR PAPER: As you know, using an eraser on watercolour paper before you apply colour washes, does distress the paper's surface causing ugly marks to show through colour washes and can often spoil the fresh look of a painting. Tracing the finished image onto your watercolour paper is a method used by many artists to achieve a fast transfer of your sketch to watercolour paper. Assuming your sketch or original drawing is the same size as your watercolour paper and intended painting. If you don't have a light box, fasten the drawing to be transferred to a window pane with tape and fix your watercolour paper over it, you should be able to see your drawing through the watercolour paper well enough to trace the finished image onto the paper.
With this in mind I have produced all recent drawings as two halfs of a 14 x 10½ inch size sheet, as well as the usual size gridded drawing, so the PDF files contains 3 pages.
Normally each term's first project is a half sheet (11 x 7½ inches) the picture itself being 10 x 7½ as is Lake Llyn Gwynant and also The Riverside, so these projects only contain a single PDF - A4 sheet.
When printing project images (other than PDF files) that are Landscape Format you may find with large images that only half the image is being printed on a page that is "Upright".

Useful Mixing Tips from The Projects' Standard Notes:

Planning the painting: This is very important!
First read through all the notes related to the particular project - mentally paint the picture before proceeding - analyse the project source pictures - and PLEASE be aware of the colour mixes you are about to apply to each area, and the order in which they are applied, try visualising the result. Will the brush you are about to use carry enough colour - have you mixed enough colour - is the mix too strong or too weak? Try it out on your - trial pad!


Application of washes.
This should be quick using as few strokes as possible to cover any area being worked on. A minimal amount of brush-strokes equals greater purity and translucency of colour. Too much dabbing and scrubbing when applying the colour kills its freshness.

Basic Mixing Method.
More water in the wash gives a pale or weak wash, more colour produces a stronger wash. Most mixes require only two colours, one will be darker than the other. Mix sufficient quantity of the lighter colour and just keep adding small quantities of the darker colour until you feel happy with it, keep checking your progress on your trial pad.

Mixing Lilac or [ ML] Mauve Lilac:
often used for distant hills or trees, water, sky and shadows on snow
:
From the feedback I've received mixing this colour seems to require a comment. When mixing two colours where one is much darker than the other, I would always mix sufficient quantity of just the pale colour, adding the darker colour by small amounts, until the correct tone and hue are achieved, continually using my test pad. However when both colours are dark, you need to decide which has the most intense staining quality. In this instance I feel that #1[Alizarin Crimson] is far more intense than #2 [French Ultramarine] so first mix sufficient #2 of the correct strength tone and hue, also mix a small quantity of #1 as a strong wash then add very small amounts of this to your Blue wash until Lilac is reached, it's better to be too blue than violet. Try it out on your - trial pad!
