Description

Workshop Details

This urban workshop will start with a demonstration of drawing buildings, figures and cars in a landscape. Looking at different watercolour materials and techniques of applying washes and creating textures.

The first step will be to sketch out the urban landscape in pencil, outlining with a waterproof pen then erasing the pencil. Applying the initial washes using Cadmium Yellow, Burnt Sienna, Alizarin Crimson, Ultramarine, Cerulean Blue and Viridian Green.

Working wet in wet, creating textures, adding mid tones using thicker pigment into damp paper then allowing to dry. Then doing a final layer of darker tones to represent shadows, and adding detail.

About the Artist

Anthony is a member of NAPA the National Acrylic Painters Association and has been painting for over 30 years he holds a BA (Hons) Fine Art and Certificate in Education and is a professional artist and lecturer. Anthony is predominantly a figurative painter with a prolific output that often overflows into the disciplines of landscape, still life and abstract painting. His work stretches the boundary between representational imagery and memory, exploring techniques that become far more important than the painting process itself. Chiefly commission based his vast experience and natural talent for capturing the human form along with his expressive portraits that explore the underlying character of the sitter as seen his work being honoured with numerous awards.
