In this workshop John will show how to depict a street scene and a harbour scene, using a quick and loose watercolour technique. He will talk a little about linear and aerial perspective and how to create a good composition. Each student will receive some one-to-one tuition during the day and those who paint at a faster speed can practice new brush techniques and exercises. By the end of the workshop you will have created both a street and harbour painting.
John studied illustration at Birmingham College of Art, and has enjoyed a career as a successful freelance artist, working in all mediums, but specialising in watercolour. He prefers to work in a fast, loose, impressionistic style but always with the emphasis on good drawing skills.
John enjoys giving watercolour demonstrations to art societies and teaches painting to groups of adults. He continues to work commercially, exhibits his paintings widely and has won many awards. He undertakes private commissions including more detailed animal studies and tries to find time to indulge his passion for en plein-air painting and figurative work. John is an associate member of the RBSA, a member of the Birmingham Watercolour Society and is represented by the highly regarded Harbour Gallery, Portscatho, which represents some of the best contemporary artists in the UK.
