This course explores the methods Jason has developed to render sometimes complex patterns in the sand with a limited number of marks. You will also examine the direction of movement and perspective structure that underpins the picture. In other words – he will expain how and why the marks and methods he uses work within beach scene painting.

This is the final part of the Italian urn series. In this painting Jason uses methods very similar to Sargent, combining watercolour and gouache to grade the paint from opaque to transparent when he feels the image will benefit from this approach.
This video can be found in the old masters section in the Sargent area

Turner was an innovator. His approach to handling watercolour was radically different from many of his contemporaries. Far from being a watercolour purist, he often used unconventional materials and constantly re-invented his approach to watercolour painting. For those who love this artist work and have some experience with watercolour, this course will offer an practical eye opening glimpse into the great masters working methods.
