Beach Walk 20 minute watercolour-Demonstration for Students.
by Shirley Roma Charlton
This was to show my students how not to fuss or become to heavy handed.
It is alwoys tempting to paint too much and over paint in watercolours.
For this subject they had to have a black and White copy to paint from so that they saw the tones. then no over painting just it was a lesson of PUT IT DOWN IN ONE OR TWO STROKES. Painting the colours that match the tones.
The sea in the background was painted last so that where it was dark on the figure the water was a little lighter and where it was light on the figure the water was a little darker the same with the beach.
This is my demo.
