    Hi everyone, I was down at Keyhaven on the South Coast of England last week, one of my favourite places relax and paint and I did a spot of Plein air. I struggled with the flat light. Would love to see how you would all tackle it.  Picture and video provided below. If you want to create a stronger light source feel free to do so.

    When you post yours create a new topic and I look forward to seeing what you can do.

    Thanks for sharing your reflections on the painting process. You say which colours you are using, but nothing about the size of the picture, the paper or the size of brushes you used. Best wishes, Patricia

    Hi Patricia this was just an impromptu plein air session I did while on holiday a couple of weeks ago.  So I didn’t really edit the video. as a full tutorial I am going to re-call best I can what I used to paint the scene.

    9″ x 7″ watercolour paper

    Alizarine Crimson,  Cadmium Red, Cobalt Blue, Cerulean Blue, Pathalo Blue, Cad Yellow

     

    Size 4 squirrle mob brush, Chinese size 5

     

    I wouldn’t get to hung up on brush sizes just use what feels comfortable to you.  Just try not to use tiny brushes.

     

    Hope that helps a bit.

     

    Patrick
