Painting project

Part 2 How to simplify your subject as you paint a busy harbour scene, with Colin Joyce

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Simplify a busy harbour scene

Paint water and reflections

How to add a suggestion of texture in watercolour

Last month I suggested ways to think about interpreting your photographs to simplify the subject in front of you. Hopefully, you either created your version of my photograph or perhaps used one of your own. Better still, did you try working from your own on-site sketches?

I’d love to see what you’ve come up with. Please send an image to dawn@tapc.co.uk who will put it on the painting project area of LP’s website at www.painters-online.co.uk. Alternatively contact me via www.colinjoyceart.com or bring it along to the Patchings Festival in July, where you can visit my stand and show me in person. I’ll have my painting on show there, too.
