January Meeting  -  Simon Trinder 

Simon Trinder  -  Watercolour demonstration

Simon demonstrated his watercolour techniques in creating backlit subjects such as sunrise and sunset landscapes. This was very well received by the group and Simon was able to pass on lots of guidance and tips for us to try in our own paintings.

Simon created a background on which to work using yellow, red and blue leaving a white space in the centre to represent the position of the sun. The effect was draw the observer into the painting with contrasting shadow towards the edge and brightness towards the centre.

The next step when dry was to wet the entire painting under a shower and allow it dry again. This creates a smooth transition of colour from the centre outwards and produces the base on which many of Simon's paintings start.
