On Thursday I had the company of 3 lovely ladies from Pentyrch Art Society.
Barbara, Charmian and Carol came over to me for an animal magic watercolour workshop. We had a fun and full day getting to grips with mastering layering washes and me trying to stop Carol sneakily using her tube of white gouache in her work!
With Christmas coming up they had requested to do a robin and the other animal they all wanted to paint was a giraffe.
I got to searching for a lovely image to buy and found these sweet giraffe portrait. Isn’t she gorgeous.
For the robin I already had a lovely image on file and so we worked on her.
Below are the demos and some pictures of the ladies with their finished robins and giraffes – not bad for a day’s work !
My new Spring Watercolour Programme will be coming out in mid January and if you would like me to email it to you just leave a comment below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
