A Last Walk Along The Beach - Video On Demand Watercolour Workshop
In this workshop you will be painting a lovely romantic scene that portrays a young (or old) couple walking hand in hand along the beach on the the last night of their holiday. Lots of lovely wet sand reflections, a dramatic sunset and some fantastic textures.
The lesson behind this workshop is all about focus and what better way to learn about focus than by painting a lovely romantic scene???….Excuse me?!?
Well yes isn’t romance all about focus!…
As painters we are all romantics to a degree because we present our clients with an idealised or romanticised vision of the world around us which they relate to and want to be a part of.
However more importantly romantics understand that in order to be romantic your focus and attention has to be completely on the other person and there is where today’s lesson comes into the equation as today you will learn one of the most important things you need to do as a painter - direct your viewers attention and focus to where you want them to be looking i.e. your focal point!
As you will see by the end of the video everything in the painting you will be producing is designed to draw attention & focus to one thing - the focal point which in this painting is the happy couple taking their last romantic stroll along the beach before they return home.
One thing that will set your work apart from the masses is learning how to get your viewer to your paintings focal point effortlessly and if you can convince your viewer that they have freewill when they look at one of your paintings when in actual fact you are directing their attention from the moment they set eyes on it then you have it sussed!
This is a hugely important skill every painter must learn and this workshop will show you just some of the ways that you can do this.

First of all for these workshops you will need your eyes & ears I always encourage students to watch the workshop first and then have a go because I record most of these workshops in just one take so any mistakes or adjustments I may make to get to the final painting are included - this way you learn more.
More importantly though I always encourage students who are new to me to approach these workshops with an open mind!
While I always try to encourage students to use their own materials I know that some of you prefer to use the same as the tutor as it is one less thing to think about. Especially when you may be trying out some new techniques. So below you will find a complete list of the materials I used to produce the painting in this workshop:
1 x Sheet of Watercolour Paper (I used Bockingford 425gsm ROUGH 1/4 Imperial [38 x 28cm])
If you need to you can purchase paper directly from me here:
I use Daniel Smith extra fine watercolours as quite frankly they are in my opinion the best on the planet however I know that some of you may not have access to these so where appropriate I have included a substitute colour that may be more readily available to you.
Suggested Colours: Bloodstone Genuine, Burnt Sienna, Isoindoline Yellow (sub’ Cadmium Orange), Naples Yellow, Carbazole Violet (sub’ Dioxazine Violet), Indigo
If you fancy getting yourself a few tubes of these fantastic watercolours you can find the colours I use here:
