Welcome to my blog today and I'd like to say a huge thank you to my students today at East Coker Village Hall - a simple comment from someone saying "I'm inspired" makes the session so rewarding for me. (And I'm also quite proud that I managed navigate the alarm system to get in!)
As promised, here are a few images of the paintings from the morning. We painted both Apples and Daffodils using three different methods, wet-on-dry, dropping colour into plain water painted onto the paper and a complete wet-in-wet sketch with background.
The repetition of painting the subject across a narrow strip of paper is something that I'd recommend, particularly with the apples (daffs may need a larger piece of paper!).
And, finally, the demonstration of the snowdrops, this is where I am at my happiest, water running free and fast "almost" out of control!
The next watercolour session at Barrington Village Hall is fully booked, but I have spaces at Long Load on 18th March 2010 and East Coker Village Hall on 16th June 2010. Please visit my website http://www.kayeparmenter.co.uk/ for full details.
