TV Artist Dermot Cavanagh – Online Watercolour Demonstration of a ‘Packhorse Bridge in the Cumbrian Hills’


Learn to Paint with BBC TV Artist Dermot Cavanagh. On-Line Watercolour Demonstration.

Duration: 2hrs 23mins       

Welcome to another of my online and interactive demonstrations for you to follow and learn from. In this week’s tutorial, I’m creating an atmospheric watercolour to teach you how to paint majestic mountains and a crumbling old packhorse bridge over a bubbling brook. The bridge is at Wasdale Head in the heart of the Cumbrian Lake District. In this tutorial there is not so much sketching, compared to my other courses. There’ll be lots of broad brushstrokes and bleeding washes. I’ve Painted walked and sketched in this area of England many times over the years while doing residential painting courses and it never fails to inspire me with so many painterly panoramas to draw from.

My online tutorial demos are filmed and delivered in great detail so anyone, anywhere can learn and develop painting skills. This is the most unique and innovative way to learn to paint today and can be accessed immediately worldwide from the comfort of your own home.
Never miss a thing from the initial sketch to the finishing touches, follow every brushstroke. You can watch my regular live and interactive demos; ask questions and have them answered live during the demo — Then watch it over and over again on-line and have a go yourself later in your own time. Please feel free to leave your feedback.

Regards and Happy Painting.

“It went really, well and Dermot was brilliant as usual”.

“Thank you so much for organising that wonderful demo with Dermot Cavanagh.  It was brilliant – and in these difficult times, it was so nice to think that the Club members were watching it virtually all together”.

“That was such an inspiring demonstration by Dermot Cavanagh.  So easy to follow and much enlightenment on how to examine our own methodology and how one might address it.  Many thanks for setting this up; a great idea”.

 “Wow! That was great! Really enjoyed it. Haven’t touched watercolours for years but this has inspired me to have another go”.

“I must say a huge thank you  for organising this. We watched as a family of 4 on our 32” smart TV and it was spot on, we were all enthralled”.
