The Sunday Art Show Cow Painting Tutorial Mixed Media Experiment

This week, I try a mixed media experiment to draw a friesian cow using watercolour marker pens, then take a clean wet brush to move the paint around, spray the paint with water to create effects, then use interactive acrylic paint to fill in the background and put some highlights on the cow. See you next week, for the next episode of the Sunday Art Show.

The Sunday Art Show - Sheep & Landscape painting tutorial - lying down in the English countryside

In this week's episode of the Sunday Art Show, I use Atelier Interactive acrylics to paint a sheep lying down in the English countryside. Inspired by a flock on the edge of Exeter in Devon, thin washes are used to suggest background hills and hedgerows, then thicker paint is used for the foreground grass and sheep that includes a wider range of colours and textures. See you next Sunday for the next episode of the Sunday Art Show! :-)

The Sunday Art Show - 10 minute landscape painting - English countryside

In this week's episode of the Sunday Art Show, I work on a quick ten minute painting to capture some hills, trees and hedges in acrylic. Really enjoying the challenge of these quick ten minute studies, I hope to use a more considered version of this composition in the near future for a landscape painting based on the countryside near Exeter, maybe with a few sheep in the bottom left of frame and a few up on the distant hill.

In this week's the Sunday Art Show, I demonstrate how to paint an oak tree using acrylic paint. This oak tree painting tutorial uses conventional acrylic paint first, then this is over-painted with atelier interactive acrylic paint and a variety of brush strokes, mark making and blending techniques. You can also see some close-ups of the painting below. See you next week for the next episode of The Sunday Art Show

The Sunday Art Show - Ten Minute Landscape Painting Real Time

Today, I paint a real time ten minute landscape painting that is inspired by the view of the River Exe from the end of Dawlish Warren beach. I sketched in a few lines while standing on the Devon sand and enjoying the sunshine. Then, back at the studio and working from memory, I use Atelier interactive acrylics to quickly create a scene of a boat on calm blue water with rolling hills in the distance. See you next Sunday for the next episode of the Sunday Art Show.
