It's nearly 11 years since I've painted any watercolours and before this class I've only done a one week course in London so don't expect too much. I just thought it would be interesting to see any improvement over the next 8 Wednesdays.
Setting up (I love Instagram)
Half way through my first painting
Adding depth and contrast
some other little studies. trying to be a bit more free flowing below.
Below is my attempt on the left and Susie's on the right.
I've overworked it....early days though....
I found today quite challenging. Being an engineer originally, I'm used to being quite exact and detailed...and water colour is all about letting it flow. It's very good brain training as well as artistic training.
And below is some of Susie's work.
Check out her website for more.
She's amazing isn't she!
So it's back to furniture painting tomorrow. I sold two pieces today. All in all a very enjoyable day!
Does anyone else paint watercolours?
