Jonathan Newey

12th March 2022

Jonathan Newey brought a March hare to life in his Zoom demonstration for 45 members on Saturday 12th March.  He started with a pencil sketch of the hare on Bockingford 140lb cold pressed paper.  Then using watercolour paints for the tones of the animal's fur and features, and coloured pencils to add texture and detail, he guided us expertly through his techniques, such as holding the pencil very close to the end and constantly turning for the 'furry' effect.  He also used a Posca white pen for the glint of light in the eye, and for the whiskers against the brown fur.  He added the muted green/grey background after finishing the animal, letting the colours merge into one another for an abstract effect.  His brushes were from the Rosemary Series 401, sizes 10 and 4.  It was a relaxing and very informative afternoon.

Here are some screen shots showing the development of the final painting....
