Stockholm

Stockholm by Meldrum

I was playing with contrasts today, in the end I was quite happy with the way it turned out. More urban paintings on the way I feel.

I haven’t painted a sailing boat for two weeks!

A moment of solitude

Yes, I said I was not going to paint sailing boats for a while and this is so far true. I cannot resist the sea though, I could never stop painting the ocean, I love it too much.
This watercolour is painted on Arches rough paper and is 70 x 24 cm.

Have a nice weekend!

Stretching watercolour paper

I’ve started giving watercolour tips on YouTube. In the first episode I talk about how and why I stretch watercolour paper.

Sunsets

Sunset 70 x 50

One should avoid sunsets, most artists and photographers will tell you that.
So it was a challenge to find a theme that made a sunset acceptable in the eyes of critics. The subject I have chosen has divided Europe since 2015. I do not know how people will react to my watercolour, it speaks to me clearly enough but I also know that my neighbour might see something totally different.

My latest YouTube vlog exclusive

Yes, with the exception of my Patreon supporters you are the first to see this new episode of Meldrum Art – Watercolour Journeys. I visit Iwakuni, my son’s hometown and sketch the Kintaikyo Bridge. The Cherry Blossoms were in full bloom, it was so beautiful. Back at home I try to capture that wonderful day as best I can in watercolour. The video will be available to all later today on YouTube.
