Three New Watercolours – Cornwall, County Down and Northumberland

Hi Everybody

I am always on the lookout for interesting scenes to paint as watercolours and although most of my watercolours use photos that I have taken , occasionally I see a photo that I would like to have a go at painting too.

This has happened twice this week and with time available due to the lock down  I was lucky enough to get the permission’s of the two photographers to paint these watercolours. I am indebted for their permissions.

The first one is of a small town in Cornwall, called St Clements, which is near Falmouth.

I saw the image on a blog that I always enjoy reading called  Cornishbirdblog.

Even if you don’t live in Cornwall, and I don’t, I would recommend it as it is always interesting to read.

So here is my version of a photo of St Clements and I do hope to visit there one day.

Watercolour of St Clements in Cornwall. 15 inches by 11 on Arches 300 gsm watercolour paper

The second one is of a place I do know well, The Mountains of Mourne in Northern Ireland.
I have painted quite a few watercolours of the area before but an evening photo taken by Gerry Judge really caught my eye and so here is my watercolour interpretation of it.

You can see Gerry’s excellent photos at Gerry Judge Photography and I am very grateful for his permission to use the photo as a basic reference for  this watercolour

And lastly a watercolour from one of my own photographs, this time of Bamburgh Castle in Northumberland where we enjoyed a short break a couple of years ago. I have tried again to capture that early evening scene of calm waters and an interesting sky.

With several more weeks of this current Lockdown still to go I hope to paint quite a few more watercolours

I hope you will enjoy these two anyway.

 

Stay well and safe

Regards

Brian
