Original Watercolours by Tim Wilmot


Kiosk, street corner, Livorno

Livorno, Italy, Watercolour, 15" x 11" Kiosks are really convenient objects to include in a street scene. A chance to have a little bit of contrast with the roof against the background - light against dark or vice versa, a chance to include some customers/figures. This was a demo painting...

Boats Moored below Via Scali delle Cantine, Livorno, Italy

Livorno, Italy, Watercolour, 15" x 11" Another view of the boats moored along one of the many canals/waterways in Livorno, Italy. As an artist who likes painting these sorts of small boats, it's a fantastic area to do plein air painting. I made up the figures and the guy pulling...


Scali delle Cantine Livorno 2

Livorno, Italy, Watercolour, 15" x 11" A view looking towards the centre of the port city of Livorno, Italy, with the waterway on the right. Quite a contrast in values in this one, exaggerated with the contra jour or against the light to have almost silhouetted shapes - light against...


Boats Moored below Via Scali delle Cantine Livorno

Livorno, Watercolour, 15" x 11" Boats Moored below Via Scali delle Cantine in Livorno, Italy. Just below the street and next to the canals are these walkways and quayside moorings for the local boats. Beyond, are the substantial buildings, large apartment blocks lining the canal sides. This shady scene was...


Fortezza Nuova Livorno

Fortezza Nuova Livorno, Watercolour, 15" x 11" The red-brown fortress walls as a backdrop to a marina within the city of Livorno. I went fairly loose with the background, and just a few slices left light to indicate roof tops and so on. On the right is actually a block...
