This is the image I did as a demo for my Friday Night Watercolour Class. It was based on an image by John Lovett, another exciting watercolour painter from Australia. In this class we were looking at the importance of having a clear ‘centre of interest’ in the painting. We analyzed the many techniques Lovett used to guide the viewer’s eye to the buildings which are the centre of interest. We began this painting with the centre of interest ie we started with the bright reds and the whites and then painted the mid ground hill and then moved back to the distant mountains.
