A friend wants me to teach her the basics of watercolour and is very drawn to teazles and all things hedgerow.
My kind of subject! So today after sourcing many teazle images I am sketching out random shapes and forms from those collated.
I am going to use the best one or ones to then create a simple watercolour lesson on how to execute them in this medium. So excited as I love wildflowers and plants so this is a great excuse to immerse myself in hedgerow flora and fauna.
Watch this space for the watercolour demo. You can paint along too if you like.
I have until Sunday to create two lessons for her – one on teazles and one on cowslips. A perfect sunny yellow flower that echoes the heatwave sun we are being exposed to here in Wales this last few days.
Do you have a wildflower that best evokes the British countryside to you?
