A technique from my new book "Atmospheric Watercolours"
which will be released in May 2012
It is such a glorious day. The sun is streaming through my studio window and I am able to paint outside which is fantastic. Natural light always gives me far more life and vibrancy in my results
To warm up this morning I have aimed to capture the sunshine in simple watercolour washes to cheer my spirit and unleash my creative artistic energy.
It's such a neat trick and way to work positively leading to fresh,exciting results.
Artists Tip: When possible try a few daily exercises of painting the colours you see rather than always aiming to paint a definite subject. These exercises can then be used in your more serious compositions utilising your discoveries of new colour combinations and effects.
