Original Watercolours by Tim Wilmot


Bristol Sketch Night - Virtute et Industria - City of Bristol Motto

Watercolour, 15" x 11" Weekly sketch night at my art society, the 'Bristol Savages', and the topic for the night was Virtute et Industria (virtue or valour and industry) - the motto for the city of Bristol in the UK. So we have 2 hours to produce a painting based...


Sherston Plein Air #1

Sherston, UK, Watercolour, 15" x 11" First plein air of the day at Sherston with the 'Exiles'. This is looking down Church Street. Picked this spot primarily because it was in the shade. I think with watercolour plein air, a key consideration on where/what to paint is 1) get comfortable,...


Uphill Marina River Axe at Low Tide

Uphill, Somerset, Watercolour 15" x 11" A painting based on a photo taken on a summer plein air trip to Uphill near Weston-Super-Mare. It's the River Axe as it meanders into the Bristol Channel and there's quite a few boats which at low tide look as if they have suffered...


Hotel Playa Sol & Beach, Cadeques, Spain

Cadeques, Spain, Watercolour 15" x 11" One of many small coves around the bay at Cadeques. I think the trick with painting small boats like this, is not to make them look too perfect as in the tops of the hulls as a smooth or hard edge. Break it up...


Bristol Savages Wednesday Sketch Night - "There is no wealth but life"

Watercolour, 15" x 11" Wednesday night at my art club, the Bristol Savages, and topic for the night was a quote by John Ruskin - "There is no wealth but life". So you have 2 hours to come up with a painting, without using any resource material - and sorry,...


St Ives Cornwall - Demonstration painting

St Ives, watercolour, 15" x 11" A demonstration painting where I took a scene and deconstructed it to suit a basic composition. So a bit of a practice of a graded wash - and yes the sea is that blue sometimes. And a practice of painting around objects plus reflections....


Latest YouTube Video - Dull Day scene in La Spezia Italy

Here is my latest video up on YouTube, featuring a really dull day in La Spezia, Italy. It also shows a plein air painting I did at the scene. Thanks for watching! Painted on Saunders.


Livorno Port Fishing Boats

Livorno, Italy, Watercolour, 15" x 11" I think it's good to have a bit of foreground in a harbour scene where there might be distant boats and a horizontal shape to the background. And then get the foreground in at a slight angle, plus a few smaller boats, painted loosely....


Rue Louis Pasteur St Foy la Grande, France

St Foy la Grande, France, Watercolour, 15" x 11" Something summery for a late autumn posting and a bit of warm and cool here on the Rue Louis Pasteur in the market town of St Foy la Grande. Painted on Saunders Waterford, Cold Press, 300 gms. #watercolour #StcMill #watercolorpainting This...


Compton Dando demo 2019 - demo to local art group

Demo #1 Demo 2 A recent visit back to Compton Dando Art Society and two local scenes to them. It was a two-hour session, so I did one before the coffee break and one after. I took it as a demo of course of watercolour, but also values. Both painted...
