Based on the atmosphere of The Stade in Old Town, Hasting. I take you through the project in acrylic, showing you howto double load the brush with paint. With watercolour the place has a delicate feel but still captures the seaside feel. Suitable for all abilities. 


Materials for Quirky Town Project with acrylic paint:

I used an A3 size piece of mount card but again anything goes with this project - bigger or smaller would all work and it doesn’t need to be mount card - plywood, mdf or packaging cardboard would all work.

Make sure whatever you use, prime with at least 2 to 3 coats of a very dark/mixed black acrylic paint.

Cobalt Blue, Yellow Ochre, Burnt Sienna, Cadmium Red and White.

Burnt Umber, Ultramarine Blue (These last 2 colours make a good mixed black)

3/4” Flat brush. Or similar flat brush.

Light coloured watercolour pencil to make drawing.

Black pen- fountain pen, art fine liner pen, black biro, gel pen.

For the watercolour version.

I used Ultramarine Blue, Burnt Umber, Lemon Yellow (any will do) Vermillion Red.

Again any colours would suit this project.

Watercolour paper any weight/type/size will do.
