Demo Evening – Figures in the Landscape

On Thursday 18th January I’ll be holding my first regular monthly demonstration evening of 2018 and the subject matter is figures in the landscape using watercolour.

Placing figures into a landscape painting is a wonderful artistic ploy to indicate scale and perspective. In this demo I will show you how to capture a realistic figure in a few brush strokes and how best to compose them into a landscape.
