Welcome to this Watercolour and Photography workshop. This workshop is for students who have taken watercolour classes previously and not afraid to sketch!

Students may continue with this course with their own photograph or download Bev's photo references of her coneflowers. Follow with step by step instructions and afterwards, be adventurous with your own photograph!

Preview 10:20

Time to think of composition and find the 'right' photograph to insert into the mat board opening. Find a simple subject or use Bev's coneflowers. Try to focus on simple images and not draw too much detail.

Time to Sketch
04:18

Apply masking fluid to all stems, flower petals and some front leaves so that we can save the white of the mat board.


Masking
08:21

Create your own Colour Mixing Chart with the watercolour paints that you already have. This chart will always be a great resource for future paintings, so that you are able to see what paints to mix to create that special colour. 

Colour Mixing Guide
08:32

For a wonderful and easy background, place saran or cling wrap immediately over wet paint. Use your finger to create interesting leaf impressions.

Background

What a surprise when you lift the saran or cling wrap! You never know what you will find....

Removing Wrap and Masking Fluid

Let’s explore 3 ways to do colour matching:

  1. Purchase a commercial product such as Color Mixing Guide 'Magic Palette'.
  2. Creating your own Colour Mixing Chart with the paints you have available.
  3. Paint Colour Swatches of Paints.





Colour Matching
05:45

Always remember to paint every other petal so that a drying line will separate each petal. Start with the lightest colours. Always paint light to dark.

Let's Start Painting - Coneflowers
16:07

Paint with a rigor or small brush to create the shape and texture matching the coneflower center in the photograph.

13:45

The stem’s colour varies in the photograph. Some were green and the front ones were larger and appeared dark brown and dark green.

Painting the Stems
07:11

Try to do some negative painting in the background with a dark wash. This technique is an unique approach of painting around an object (in this case leaves & branches) to define it, in a composition.

Negative Painting

With this workshop I hope that you:

  1. Feel confident to sketch on mat board to extend out any photographs

  2. Feel confident to colour match watercolours to an existing Colour Photograph

Happy Painting and Keep those Brushes Wet!

Professional Artist and Teacher

Proud member of the Southampton Art Gallery and School in Canada since 2011. I have enjoyed my two passions 'travel and watercolours' by teaching on art conventions and on two cruise lines. I’ve learned to instill art appreciation to my students and promote creativity. I have proved the ability to maintain a highly motivated classroom and offer individualized support and provide encouragement to ensure that each student succeeds. I am mostly self taught, but enjoy taking workshops with other artists to learn and continuing growing as an artist.
