Always a great subject to paint. We masked out the flower drawings and tried several experimental backgrounds using watercolour with salt and clingfilm. Some of the resulting paintings were used in aperture cards….a lovely gift.
Today we looked at the work of the late Ron Ranson an artist who inspired me and many others through his books and demonstrations.
Painting soft reflections in watercolour is not easy. It needs plenty of practice. Everyone did really well.
A change of venue for this Saturday morning workshop. We were in the cafe at Gelli Aur and made very welcome by the staff there.
Great fun this morning….I hope! I know some people were way out of their comfort zone which is usually a good thing. We did lots of studies of waves and rocks making marks using cut up pieces of credit card…dragging the edge through wet paint.
