Last Tuesday night, I visited the Burlington Fine Arts Association at the Burlington Arts Centre. I was invited by their Program Coordinator, Victoria Pearce (middle), to give a slide talk about my watercolours and a demonstration. Doug Cockell (left) was the capable technician and my PowerPoint presentation went without a hitch. The event was well-attended with about fifty BFAA members in the audience.
I only had about 45 minutes for my watercolour demo. I’d prepared a Tuscan Village from my imagination and had completed a preliminary wash ahead of time. The first image shows how far I got before I ran out of time.
You can see the black shapes in the final image. I use Lamp Black and I find it very liberating to add black to these paintings. It’s been used fairly sparingly here.
Thanks for having me, BFAA. I hope you’re reading this and enjoy my completed Tuscan Village.
