Demo Evening – Watercolour Sunsets

On Thursday 21st September I held another of my monthly demo evenings at my gallery in Hythe.  The topic the time around were sunset in watercolour.

As usual, it was a fun and informative evening, well attended by both beginners and those who had used watercolour before.  Watercolour is great for creating sunsets as the warm tones of the sunset can be easily blended together while the paint is still wet to create really natural looking, beautiful sunsets.

Sunset at Pedlinge.  Watercolour. £275 Framed

During the evening I worked on two paintings simultaneously, moving between them to give the paint a chance to dry.  The first one, is of a sunset over Pedlinge, near Hythe and the second is of the iconic Martello towers at Fisherman’s Beach, Hythe.  I was very happy with how they turned out!

Sunset behind he Martello towers. Watercolour. £275 Framed.

The next demonstration evening will be on the Thursday 12th October and the topic will be a zebra foal in acrylics.  For more details and to book your place see my website.
