Summer Sunshine & End of Term
The relaxed state started early today. What a beautiful day!
Today's painting was a Summer Sunshine Landscape with buttercups.
A very happy sunny idea.
I particularly like this inspiring photograph of Claire's.
We pencilled in our initial sketch and masked the buttercups with masking fluid.
Some people did farmhouses, some did cows, it was very relaxed today, you could decide how you wanted your finished painting to look.
We had a complete mix of artists too, from beginners through to artists who've been with us for eight or so years. It was a lovely group.
We had a "Jamie" inspired lunch, delicious asparagus, followed by Berkshire strawberries which I used in the latest Waitrose pudding recipe.
Here are the finished paintings:
Today was the last class of term. I will update the blog with next term's dates during the Summer Holidays, if you would like to be on my mailing list, please get in touch.
