Time for another watercolour demo at the Coast Collective. I've just moved house so what I do may be supply dependent.

30 Oct 2016 Watercolour Demo Category: Workshop/Class Venue: Coast Collective Art Centre, Colwood, BC, Canada
It will be almost Halloween so I thought for my next watercolour demo I would show folks my method for creating night scenes. It doesn't seem to be a commonplace subject for the medium, and I am going to contrast the effects that one can get using glazes in blue vs glazes in silver or pearlescent watercolour, as well as how to create stars and moons.

I will be doing a demo to show how to work on multiple paintings on a single piece of paper in order to create a mini-series of paintings. I learned this technique from my friend, mentor and colleague Gregg Johnson and it's become a favourite way for me to work when I want some small pieces. The demo will be ongoing from 11 - 4 and I will be doing a repeat of the demo on Sunday Sept 18.
