PLEIN AIR GEORGETOWN3.jpg

I love plein air painting! This is an easy beginners creative style watercolour that anyone can master! A real time demonstration with commentary, where I discuss what paints I'm choosing, and why. You can see the 'wetness' of the paper, and how the paints run and merge as the painting dries. I'm using watercolours, but you can do exactly the same with acrylics! Use a big brush, and work on paper.

I battle the elements with this watercolour. I was perched on a sloping patch of prickly weed, and the tide was incoming, which meant half my rocks might have become inundated. Luckily I was able to do a quick painting, and I like the sketchy feel of this “ugly duckling” scene.

Plein Air in the Wind!!

I'm nearly blown away in this video!

I had difficulties with getting the right angle with the camera, and the top of my head becomes the main feature too many times! But if you can forgive that, it's a good painting in the end. One of my favourites.

St Helens in Tasmania! A great spot for plain air painting!

Watch this video and feel the warm air!! It was a perfect day to be outside: the next day was pouring and cold, so I was lucky!

Download the photo, and have a go at painting this scene. Apologies in advance for not having the exact view! I didn't take a shot when I arrived! My bad!

Plein air watercolor painting at the Wooden Boat Centre, Franklin, Tasmania.

These boats are beautiful, but not so easy to paint. In fact, I don’t recommend this for beginners, unless you like a challenge!  ;-) Go on!

I often paint acrylics on paper: sort of a mix of watercolour technique with traditional painting. It’s a halfway position which gives me freedom to be creative. It is very forgiving, as one can re-paint sections. This video has the usual hiccups: camera fail, I fail! I used voice over in the middle to avoid having to dump this video. I hope that’s OK with you all.

Due to my schedule I do not have time to create separate videos for Patreon, so I have cancelled my account with them. Some lovely supporters have reached out and asked for another way to make a donation, so I have set uo this PayPal option. I'm super grateful for any financial support, as it helps me make more videos and share the fun of painting!
