Joyce Hicks 'Homestead' Watercolor Demo


Artist and author Joyce Hicks is known for her romantic cottage, country and coastal scenes.   In this 17 minute speed-painting video, Hicks demonstrates her watercolor technique,   Hicks says: "I’ve always been able to see places and things in an idealistic way, but it wasn’t until I discovered painting that I was able to express and interpret this personal view. My art is not always a true rendition of what is actually there but how I wish it could be. If the old white homestead is a bit neglected, then I will just capture it in sunlight to discover its real beauty. If there is only one withered rose on the old trellis then why not one hundred in full bloom?"

Watercolor Demo: House in the Mist

The subject for John Lovett's watercolor and gouache demonstration is a beautiful old house looking over Sydney Harbour. In the photograph it looks a little lost, tucked in amongst all the other houses and overpowered by a collection of boats. With this painting we will try and give the house a more mysterious atmosphere by simplifying the composition and using a wash of white Gouache.
