Your Watercolour Paintings › Beach Scene (after Charles Evans)

Good morning all.
seems as it chucking it down here, NE UK, I washed the breakfast pots up and out came my paints for another go.
i found this artist on the SAA website along with some other great paint along tutorials. This is however from his YouTube site, ( what would we do without YouTube ) and only about 20 minutes long during which time I just kept pausing the play.
i still feel I was a little rushed and still not getting the mixes very well but overall for me a reasonable effort but more important another chance to learn. I loved the way he used a credit card to produce his rocks.
This chap only uses 4 brushes and 8 colours, wish I had found him earlier. 😜
Time for another tutorial. I’m afraid you will have to bear with me using tutorials for a while, I’m so envious of those of you who paint their own photos/scenes, I will get there in the end but when I tried my own scene it was a disaster.
As I mentioned in an earlier post I have quite a bit of stock, about 400 sheets of this,so this is painted on Bockingford 140 lb rough. I’ll save the Saunders Waterford I have until I’m more competent.
Have a good day everyone.

Jim, you have many great things going in this painting: your sky, the whites of the crashing waves, and the scale of the cliffs with the couple’s silhouetted images. Nicely done.

An angled shadow on the sand cast by the cliffs would help the pic as the figures are casting a shadow also.

Beautiful sky and fabulous cliff rock. Great work, Jim!

Nice painting. I think we all went through many tutorials. It can be very beneficial. Starting painting without them can be disappointing ( talking about myself) . I find Chales Evanse’s videos easy to paint, limited palette is best thing ever. I think we all could loose half of the colors and be better painters after all. I like his technique of lifting wet paint. It actually works very well. Carry on. You’re going in the right direction.
