Step–By–Step Demonstrations

Each of nine separate demonstrations helps the reader visualise the steps they will take to create their own En Plein Air artworks.

Demonstration No. 5
'Doneen Haven'
Letterfrack Harbour

  1. Figure 1

    Step 1
    Map in the scene very roughly. Indicating the large areas i.e. sky hills and foreground. Think in an abstract way, looking for the bigger or simple relationships of value and colour. I used a rag to wipe out the water area.

  2. Figure 2
    Step 2

    Simply indicate the distant hills and loosely place in the boats and harbour. Foreground: Venetian Red, Boats Cadmium Red, Hills Viridian, sky mixture of Cerulean Blue and Raw Umber.

  3. Figure 3
    Step 3

    'mass in' the larger shapes using thick paint. Try to work all over the canvas by filling in the big 'slabs' of colour avoiding too much detail at this stage. I used Cadmium Violet for main hill and Cerulean Blue for water.

  4. Figure 4
    Step 4

    Model and work colours towards the edges of the shapes (i.e. harbour to boats.) Refine and continue to define by sharpening edges around boats and softening background (sky, hills, etc. use more saturated colour, contrast or detail in main area.

  5. Doneen Haven
