January watercolours in a Wiltshire bookshop!
Catherine Beale – everything watercolour
by Catherine Beale

This week I was delighted to be invited to Marlborough’s stunning White Horse Bookshop in Wiltshire to demonstrate to a class how to capture light lake reflections in watercolour. Our day was all about using luminous, dripping paint to create trees reflecting on a calm water surface. My “gravity painting” techniques got into full swing as we worked swiftly to merge pigments and create wild watermarks – painting the colourful trees and their reflections simultaneously. We noticed that the slightly bumpy surface of the paper guided the paint around to create organic edges and subtly mottled pain ..read more

An opportunity for painters who really want to let loose in watercolour! We will be using brush control and a steeply tilted surface board to coax dripping paint around waterlilies. Master differing drying times and the surface tension of the paint to encourage mysterious watermarks to develop. Obtain all the know-how from Catherine at this new Bath Watercolour Workshop on Wednesday 21 February (10-3:30) at Museum of Bath Stone BA2 5HZ. Book here ..read more

Sparkling light on the sea @ Cornwall School of Art

Last week we enjoyed some gorgeous seascapes full of bright light – a joyful subject to teach during my two days of workshops for Cornwall School of Art, Truro. My watercolour pictured here is based on a photo from Cot Valley near St Just. I remembered the valley walk while I was painting. It leads to a magical beach covered with giant egg-shaped boulders, perfectly rounded and multicoloured. My wet-in-wet techniques helped me to blend sea and sand where the water pours through the rocks creating sparkling channels ..read more
