This is the image that I did for my latest video lesson. For the beginning watercolourist this seems a very difficult painting and it is, but only in the sense that it has a lot of different techniques involved. However, none of these techniques are by themselves particularly difficult. In fact, thinking about this I recalled a saying that I made up when I was a public school teacher. That saying was: ‘hard is just more easy steps’. This painting certainly is an example of that saying.
Doorways are a very popular subject because they always seem to imply a story. Doorways draw us into the painting.
