Wild Primroses - watercolour, loose and simple

How to paint beautiful wild primroses loosely in watercolour

Online Tuition £10

The beautiful wild primrose with their clusters of pale yellow flowers are perfect to capture in watercolour.  

I tend to see them and visualise them from above, as a posy of flowers surrounded by warm green leaves.

With the purchase of my online tuition you will learn via two online videos:

  • Learn how to mix leafy greens
  • Play with texture in the leaves
  • Practice with small flowers and shapes
  • Obtain the effect of light on the petals
  • Increase the contrast
  • Bring all the techniques together into one painting
Bring a little spring to your day and have a go!

Lyme Regis Crabbing

"Lyme Regis Crabbing" Original Watercolour One evening last year I visited Lyme Regis to make sketches, take photos and soak up the atmosphere for inspiration.   It was an amazing evening, not a cloud in the sky and the town was bustling which was absolutely perfect for wandering and just stopping to observe.  I have about 50 or so photos which I have been studying and this first painting was inspired by the children sitting along the harbour side with crab lines dangling over the edge into the water. The low sun facing the building on the Cobb hasn't given me many shadows to play with, but the water was a gorgeous deep blue and the light fell on the stone rim of the wall and sides of the boats.  But of course, my focal point is my small fisherman, leaning precariously over the edge to try and get his catch! ©kayeparmenter 2020

Private Commissions "Neeko" Centre ©Kaye Parmenter 2020 Commissions Neeko is the latest addition to my commission portfolio.  Although sadly gone but not forgotten, he was a breed called Lhasa apso.  They are considered to be affectionate and great companions.  Along with the other characters in this montage, I had a lovely opportunity to capture his gorgeous furry, hairy face in watercolour.  It's never a problem for me as painting dogs is up there amongst my favourite subjects! As ever, my painting starts with the eyes.  I really look hard to try and capture the personality of my subject and the eyes are the "window' to the soul.  Behind each painting is a character that brings love, laughs and a bond that really is indescribable.  Thank you to everyone who gives me the chance to capture their loved ones in watercolour, it is always truly appreciated x

"Charlie" Private Commission ©kayeparmenter2020 Anyone who knows me, understands how much I love dogs and how much I enjoy painting them. I can't believe we don't actually have a dog - well, that's another story! So here is gorgeous Charlie, and the thing I enjoyed most about creating this painting was the energetic brush strokes to get those fabulous curls.  Allowing them to blend into the background gives a sense of movement and energy.  Hopefully I've managed to capture Charlie's personality in this painting.  I have a busy week ahead of me in the studio and that includes a couple of dog commissions so I'll have more to share in the future :)
