David was really generous with his time and worked on his oil painting almost non-stop from 10.30 to 4.30. We all thoroughly enjoyed the day and wish to thank David for sharing not only his techniques but also his love of painting with us. We all came away so inspired. I hope to see lots of bluebell wood pictures being painted over the next few weeks – and paint one or two myself! I have been working woods in watercolour recently but can’t wait to give oils a go. Now is the time to collect lots of reference material in the form of photos and pencil and watercolour sketches for use in the studio on those dull rainy days that are unfortuneately sure to return.
