Bluebells Watercolour 2015


It was a beautiful day for painting Bluebells


This is one of our popular classes and we do it most years


We cover washes, keeping the light, trees, foliage, "glistening", but the most important thing at the beginning is getting the path right.






Artists took advantage of the lovely sunny day and had a walk out in the garden and down into the woods to see the bluebells.


But got very distracted with other lovely things such as rhodedendrons and wisteria!







At the end of the class, Claire puts all of the paintings into professional mounts which presents them beautifully, it's always great to see what everyone else has done during the day and pick up some useful tips and advice.
