Ted Nuttall seems to live in a sunny warm climate, at least his paintings radiate sunshine and warmt, lucky him.
Here is Ted doing a demonstration of his technique: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KYcWDgy38M
I spent another evening yesterday life drawing with watercolours, it’s a real challenge both drawing and painting the model in such a short time-span. It was tonnes of fun though! Click the image to see more or click here.

Drawing a model in one minute and then painting her by two. It’s fun trying to do the impossible!
I had great fun yesterday painting with primary colours at my life drawing class, I like the fact they are so cheerful, I’ll create more of these Charles Reid influenced sketches, absolutely. Click the image below to see more or click here.

I tried this technique last night at my life drawing class, after two hours I created a colourful but scary result. Charles has been doing it a while, I guess I can’t expect to emulate his style on the first attempt!
I guess I have been influenced by the current Kony-2012 campaign, I chose to draw this child soldier from the Congo, it was a little difficult, I’m trying to run before I’ve learned to walk, why didn’t I chose some flowers in a vase instead. Still, I have learned a lot from this little exercise – mainly that I need to be looser in my painting style, use less colour and to scrub less.

This Geoff Kersey tutorial is very good, I’ve only looked at 2 parts so far, I’m hooked!
