Cornwall - Watercolour Class 12 July 2012

It was the last day of Summer Term at Treetops today, and we finished with a Watercolour Class, titled Cornwall.  Always popular; seas, harbours, boats, with skills such as water and reflections to master.

The morning was spent honing our drawing skills, tricky to get the boat in a leaning position.

Then it was over to the island to put the masking fluid on the areas we wanted to keep white, before we did our first wash of colour before lunch. 

At lunch we had the Pink Champagne out to celebrate Claire's birthday.


The afternoon was spent mixing colours and bringing the painting to life.

Although it was the same boat, we used artistic licence in choosing new names and colour for the boat!

Bookings are being taken for the Autumn Term classes, dates are on the blog.  Scroll up to the top and click on the "Dates of 2012 Classes" heading.
