Summer on the Beach Watercolour Class 27 June 2011

We had a boiling hot day yesterday, and were all wishing we were actually on a beach!

We painted Marloes Beach in Pembrokeshire, it had rugged cliffs, golden sands and reflections for us to work on.

We used masking fluid to mask out the wave tips to keep them white throughout our washes.

Only the very bravest attempted to put people into their painting!

This was our final class of Summer Term, we are back in September with a variety of classes:

20 September - Beginners
21 September - Animals in a Scene
21 October - Autumn Glow
10 November - Venice
11 November - Autumn Glow
17 November - A Winter Scene
22 November - A Winter Scene

Sunsets in Watercolour - 7 June 2011

After a month off, we were back with our watercolours for a class on Sunsets.

Using yellows and oranges, some lovely paintings of a sunset scene in Greece were produced.

We used some very fine black pens to draw in the masts and ropes afterwards, when the paint was dry.

Claire taught everyone how to do a "glaze" today, which is the reflection hue across the water.
