Watercolour: Seaside

More holiday paintings!


9×12″. Keeping on with the swirly, slightly impressionistic style. This piece is available on Etsy.

I just got my first gouache paints, which i used for all the foreground detail. I really like them so far!

And just for reference, here’s the photo I was painting from:



Watercolor: Sunset

I just spent a lovely two weeks in Port Isaac, in north Cornwall. We had fantastic weather, and I came back desperate to start painting the sea. Here’s the first attempt:

9 x 12″ watercolor and acrylic on watercolor paper. Original available on Etsy.

I was actually practicing a more realistic style and the clouds in the sunset were driving me UP THE WALL, so I just decided to do one that invoked Edvard Munch’s expressionism. Swirly lines and primary colours for the win!
