Watercolour Workshop: Early Morning In Misty Cove

Workshop Duration: 68 Minutes 30 Seconds

So we are off to Cornwall today, well at least in our imaginations. 

The scene for today's painting is looking across at an imaginary little cove in Cornwall called Misty Cove. It's a lovely place to visit, quiet, secluded, in fact just perfect for us artists. 

It's early morning, the cove is shrouded in mist and our friend Joe one of the local fishermen is of to catch some fish for the local restaurant.

Joe's mum is not too happy about it as the weather said that the mist & fog is all the way out to sea this morning and she does worry about him but Joe needs the cash so of he goes!......

See how powerful a story is! - you're already there! So now we have set the scene let's get to painting!  

Today's workshop is all about utilising a weather effect that is perfect to eliminate the need to over-detail our work. We do this by shrouding the whole scene in mist. 

This is a great way of covering over bits your not too sure about, little errors or just as a great way to set the scene and add bags of atmosphere to your painting.

You will also learn quite a bit about the very important subject of connection in your paintings.
