Hilltop Cottages - Video On Demand Watercolour Workshop
The painting for this workshop is a painting that I originally painted many years ago but it has remained a firm favourite of mine as it was one of the very first paintings I done where I started to experience the freedom that you get when you finally stop paying attention to all the purists that are constantly telling you you’re doing things wrong and start paying attention to the getting the results you want by any means necessary!
And that my friend is exactly what I want you to experience so what better way to do that than to recreate the experience together!
On the surface it appears that this scene contains a lot of detail but as you will see in the workshop in any good painting the detail should be invented by the viewer not painted by the artist!
This workshop will also arm you with a fantastic array of techniques that will help you achieve texture in your watercolour paintings.
Well very simply a painting with no texture = a boring painting! And you don’t ever want to be accused of producing boring paintings, do you?

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: Paynes Grey, Bloodstone Genuine, Cadmium Red Scarlet Hue, Green Gold, Hansa Yellow Light (sub’ Lemon Yellow), Lavender, Yellow Ochre, Indigo, Prussian Blue, Burnt Sienna
If you fancy getting yourself a few tubes of these fantastic watercolours you can find the colours I use here:
