Winter Scene Watercolour 1

One of most popular classes each year is Winter Scene, it's so popular we have to hold two classes. 

Winter colours are really interesting, creating a feeling of cold, frost and atmosphere.  Claire shows how even when the world is white and snowy, that you can still see the colours in the snow.

Today's picture was a beautiful river and barge boat scene.

Our artists are busy above taking notes of all the colours needed for the early stages of the painting.

Their first stage was to mask out the very white areas before they brushed over their first watercolour wash.

Here are the finished works of art!

At the end of each class, Claire displays them in a mount and we have a gallery of paintings to admire.  They are all so different despite starting from the same idea.
