Jeremy Taylor paints a Landscape

Jeremy Taylors motto - "Be Bold and Take Chances"!

Wet wet wet!

To begin with Jeremy fixed the focal point of the picture - a small cross - onto the paper which was all the drawing he intended to do! After really wetting the 140lb Saunders paper he then sloshed some yellow ochre onto the page with a 1" brush. He often uses only 3 colours and never more than 6.

Ultramarine for the sky, with darker shades of Paynes Grey. Cerulean Blue blends with the greens of the distance but brighter yellow around the focal point.

Suggestions of detail

Using a dry brush he then lifted out paint to create a suggestion of detail i.e walls and lane.

Shadows in the foreground were added using a warm Burnt Sienna drawing the eye to the ever important focal point. Foreground trees and trunks were added and branches scratched out with a point. Using a clean damp brush again the sheep were teased out of the painting. Just enough interest in this wonderful simple wet in wet landscape

Jeremy even started a second demonstration showing us how to paint a contre-jour subject - against the sunlight.

Graded washes

Using mainly Permanent Rose and Yellow Ochre washes picked out the buildings and silhouettes of figures and chimneypots as they appear under strong direct sunlight.

Radiating shadows

Adding shadows in the correct line from the overhead light and keeping the faces and limbs very shadowed gave this picture an extraordinary dazzling effect.
