Painting project

Part 1 Colin Steed introduces this month’s painting project from a photograph as he explains how to capture this misty coastal subject using watercolour techniques

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

How to paint a coastal scene in mist

How to make a tonal sketch

In an effort to capture the mood of the day or that fleeting moment of nature I try to paint most of my artwork outdoors. With the British climate so unpredictable, however, sometimes the only option is to paint at home from sketches and a photograph. To paint successfully we should learn the techniques needed before we embark on a full-blown painting. This involves drawing and painting many small studies that will, over time, give you a vocabulary of techniques you can use many times over in a wide range of subjects.

A drawing will help with composition and tonal values and can be produced quickly when out walking with just a pencil and small sketchbook. Painting small watercolour sketches do not take long and can also be painted under the shelter of a tree, large umbrella, a building, porch or even a bus shelter.
