Demonstration 4th September 2018 - Sean Terrington-Wright - watercolour - boats on choppy by Maggie Goodsell

Sean gave us an interesting & entertaining watercolour demonstration of Boats on a Choppy Sea.

Sean worked at varying angles so I haven't attempted to straighten the images

The finished painting.

Sean said his aim was to give us the feeling that we were out on a choppy sea feeling slightly sea sick.

A selection of other paintings by Sean.
