The first broad applications of colour

Joe's pencil sketch which he had done from a colour photograph taken at the scene

Detail of the superb main tree in the painting. Notice how using the barely damp brush has allowed Joe to utilise the texture of the paper.

Some other examples of Joe's pencil sketches which he uses as the basis for his paintings

The result at the end of the demonstration. A superb depiction of a river scene in Scotland. The painting is not complete as we had run out of time and had to vacate the rooom, however the result is still impressive even in this unfinished stage. Click on the picture to enlarge it and see the detail.
