75 Best art - rowland hilder images | Art, Landscape paintings, Watercolor landscapeThis is my personal dedication to Rowland Hilder, and how he was to influence my own paintings and my life ….. During the days before the internet, I used to come home with arms full of watercolour art books, from the local library. I still have those books and still refer to them to this day. Roll on a few years and I decided to Exhibit for the very first time. I had put together some early works and had them framed to exhibit at The Winter Gardens in Ilkley near to my home.

After doing an approximate sketch, in which I omitted a couple of details for the sake of simplicity, I was ready to apply the first wash, which was primarily made of raw sienna with touch of burnt sienna, although I replaced the burnt sienna with some light red. After a couple of attempts to rectify this, by wetting and lifting off, in an ever larger area, I was almost ready to give up and start again! Following a couple of deep breathes, and standing back a little, I decided that the whole wash was too intense.

The lessons will be filmed live at the studio in Sozopol or in my studio at home in rural Bulgaria where the occasional sound of livestock, or satercolour chattering should be the only distractions.
