Bruce Mulcahy seascape in acrylic 2015

Bruce Mulcahy gave a demonstration using artist quality acrylic, applied with a fairly small white nylon brush, on 200lb cold pressed Bockingford watercolour paper with a slightly rough random texture.

Bruce sketched the position of the main shapes from the photograph of boats in Staithes beck. He established the dark areas with a “black” made from cobalt blue and burnt umber.

Bruce, working from dark to light, painted the similar areas of colour across the scene, creating a unified painting.

IMG_6113

Bruce worked through the painting methodically adding the larger areas, a light cobalt blue sky, grass and light sand.

In the short time available, Bruce added detail to the houses and painted the boats.

Jeremy Taylor oil demonstration 2015

Landscape demonstration in oil paint on board.  The board was covered in a thin coat of Liquin so that the oil paint will spread without added turps or thinners and for quicker drying time.
The board was prepared with a basecoat of burnt umber acrylic so that some could be allowed to show through to brighten and unify the painting.
Jeremy applied the oil directly with small flat nylon brushes in a short multi directional strokes.

Darker blues dabbed in with narrow brush.

Dark mountains and terrain added and then Jeremy softened the clouds by dusting with a soft bristle brush, removing hard edges.

Jeremy applied some creamy white dabs on the clouds, soften the edges and then applied a near white with a small pallet knife, then soften those cloud edges.
