Stormy Seas

Stormy Seas - NB

A watercolour seascape I created using techniques I’ve learnt from Jean Haines’ Atmospheric Watercolours book. In a few short weeks this book has completely transformed the way I think about and paint with watercolours. And I can’t see myself EVER going back to a more traditional way of watercolour painting….

Please click on the image to view it larger – you’ll be able to see the colours and lovely textures better. For the base of this painting I used clingfilm to create texture in the very first wash. I’ve struggled a bit with the clingfilm thing but with a bit of perseverance I’ve improved.

It took me a couple of days to do this – with large amounts of time just leaving areas to dry before carrying on.  But I’m quite pleased with the end result. Off now to learn more from Jean Haines…. !

  1. Outstanding Evelyn! You make me want to get that book back out. I forgot about using clingfilm (as you call it). You rocked this seascape! very impressive!

I'd love to hear your observations and musings...
