Thank you for your comment Mark. In fact there is more contrast in the shadows in the original painting than in the photo.
Another painting after Malcolm Coils. Canson Moulin du Roy Not 30×40 cm.
This is a view of the Northumberland coast after Malcolm Coils. Have a look at his blog. His sketches, watercolours and acrylics are really stunning. And very inspiring.
Painted from a photo of St Quiriace in Provins, a nice city near Paris.
I don’t know why, but I can’t rotate my photos. Martin, if you’re here, I need your help ! Thanks.
A great use of colours wet in wet for the mountains and the trees. A very loose painting which seems to have been painted very quickly. Well done again.
The leather dyers of Fès – Morocco, painted from a photo.
Love the greens in the trees and in the grass and the colors in the corn field. A suggestion : make the last post on the right a bit higher. A painting you should be proud of, and to be framed.
My attempt after Patrick’s tutorial. Canson XL cold pressed 30×40 cm.
This is my attempt after Patrick’s video tutorial.
Here are 2 paintings on the same subject. The first one was done about two years ago on Canson Montval hot pressed paper, the second recently on Fontaine rough paper.
Particularly love the hunt and the child’s play. You’ve your own style, very loose and fresh in a minimum brush strokes. The essence of watercolour. I agree with Patrick : when is your next video tutorial ?
This is the end. I would like to thank you Patrick and Martin for this site, the videos, the brilliant idea of the challenges and your great work.
Thank you all for your kind comments and your support. I’m not used to talk and write in English, so I didn’t post a comment to all of you, but I did as I could. If ever I was tactless due to my bad…
A very good choice, a nice drawing and finally an excellent painting to be framed.
Thanks Patrick, but granulation was an accident : to much water.
Thanks Christine. I used ultramarine and perylene maroon (a dark red) not too much mixed on the palette.
Well done. I never tried to paint on location on a double page as you did. Seems to be a good way to loosen up paintings. A new challenge for me.
Always surprising Pete. A journey to the center of the Earth : we are coming with you.
