Paul Simmons Workshop 23rd April 2016

IMG_0207 (1)Here are some group photos from the watercolour workshop day with images of Paul’s demo piece as it progressed. We all enjoyed our painting, Paul was an excellent tutor who gave us lots of help and advice. We  worked on cafe scenes, some were from our own photos and some from ones that Paul brought with him.

We picked up lots of tips regarding colours and techniques. Paul started with a light wash of Naples Yellow then Purple Madder, both favourites of his. He used the Naples Yellow throughout, including mixing it with other colours to make different greens. Although Winsor & Newton purple madder is no longer available you should be able to find an alternative similar colour.IMG_0208 IMG_0215 IMG_0241 IMG_0206 IMG_0205 IMG_0212 IMG_0204 IMG_0211 IMG_0210 IMG_0209
