The spontaneity of watercolour painting

On Monday evening I gave a demonstration which was all about the spontaneity of watercolour painting at The Hurlingham Club, London.

I laid out four large sheets of watercolour paper – two of which I had prepared with a cadmium orange ground.

The demonstration was completed within twenty minutes…..

I used flowers as my jumping off point….allowing the brush to dance across the paper.

When working off the ground, I added some gouache to the mix…..

    dear Janet, love the rapid watercolours you do. perhaps you will show me one day soon? haven’t been able to find Cecelia’s pottery anywhere so looked up google maps and have the street name… it is Rua Cap. Joãs Carlos Mendoça Olhao 8700-148

    not sure of anything else, even her family name…! could you speak to her through your blog, she receives and reads it?

    settling in and off painting this arvo 😀

      Good morning dear Jude….I do hope we are together again soon, and yes have much more time to paint. Thank you so much for taking the time to look for Celia’s info….she’s on my FB somewhere, but not sure what to look under! Good idea about the blog, will do that this week…meanwhile, will write more to you later re David’s memorial service, which was wonderful. Sending love and hoping you are now settling in back home…Janet. xx
