"Winter Backlight", watercolour landscape painting by Sharon Lynn Williams


"Winter Backlight", watercolour landscape painting, 15 x 22"

This is another of the paintings that I did at the Quiller workshop, and this one is as close to a copy as I got -Steve's was awesome, mine ok. It is done completely with transparent watercolour on 300lb watercolour paper. I have included Steve's demo below so you can see the difference. It was amazing to see how the granulating pigments worked on the rough surface.

Beautiful, Sharon. Looks very "Quillerish" - which is a huge compliment since I love Steve Quillers work.

I must say that your painting is very impressive and there is not much between you and the art tutor for the workshop. Did you work with him in step by step stages or did he do a demo and you worked from the information given then.

Hi Sharon - I can tell you have been on a Quiller course. His style is very recognisable. I hadn't realised he did watercolour,as all the books I have are on acrylic. You look like you are having fun.

Hi Caroline: He did his demo and then I tried my hand at it, having taken a few notes regarding the process. I am thrilled you think my effort was worthwhile!

Hi Gary: Yes, Steve has a definite style, which is a definite problem! The trick is to take what is learned and make it your own. This was 'supposed' to look like his, the last post was more of my own, as the next one will be.

Hi Sharon, I had a look at the demos on the link you gave and I spent a really happy morning looking at the photos of the demo. It looks wonderful, he is a fine teacher and his work is so inspiring to see.
