Liberty Longboard Classic

Posted by Stephen Quirke on April 21, 2014 under Art, seascape, watercolor, watercolour | Be the First to Comment

Here is the project I am doing on this years longboard classic.

I will update this as I go along:

This is on a piece of 300gm Arches Cold Pressed I found in a roll in my studio.  It was a bottom cut and eventually I had to cut off some width to fit onto a board which seems like a shame but there you are.  I intended to paint on it on the day but am glad I did not.   The piece is 580 x 780mm so just about normal size.

City Partnership

Posted by Stephen Quirke on February 21, 2014 under Art, Drawing, en plein air, figure | 2 Comments to Read

In Charles Reid’s watercolour video (which is on it’s way here) he says he is not a natural draftsman and drawing likeness has not come easy to him so he used to take his sketchbook out and practice.  For a while now I have carried a sketchbook and now I have taken to carrying a board with A3 sheets.  Most Friday mornings I try to make it to the City Partnership meetings at a pizza place in the local mall.  And this morning while listening to Brian Edwards talking about the compilation of the cannon of scripture I did this drawing (Dan Brown writes a great story but has not integrity as a scholar).

Here are some versions of Vera, a friend of mine from Facebook who graciously allowed me to use one of the photos from her page for Portrait practice.  Thanks Vera

This version is on a quarter sheet of Arches 300gm hot pressed – and is about 380x280mm.  What a mission – have I ever mentioned that portraits are hard?  This is probably one of those 10 000 hours things.
