Beginners Watercolour Sunflowers

Yesterday we held a Beginners and Refreshers Watercolour Class and also celebrated a special birthday.

It really was a very sunny fun day full of Sunflowers.

Claire talked through papers, brushes, paints etc before the artists settled down to practice with colours and mixing, before starting their painting.

The artists were also introduced to masking fluid and texture paste, the paste is excellent for creating the petals.

There were also tiny beads to stick into the paste for the centre of the Sunflowers.

After the first wash of background colours, it was time for lunch, to give the paintings time to dry.

Lunch was Nigel Slaters Chicken and Deliciously Ella's Salad, full of fresh and seasonal flavours.

Here are the finished works of art, they will look lovely on everyone's walls this Summer!
