Monet's Garden in Oils


Today we had an Oils class, these classes have become increasingly popular.

Our theme was Monet's Garden, full of beautiful colours and reflections.


After coffee, Claire spoke about painting in Oils and then demonstrated some techniques to help with the days painting.

Below are some of our students hard at work 


They used brushes and palette knives to apply the paint to the canvas.

For some this was their first time ever painting in oils.


Below is a display of the finished paintings:













Lunch today was Chicken Caprese, full of flavour with pesto, mozzarella, basil and tomato.  Served with fresh bread and a spinach and rocket salad.


Below was our vegetarian option, a spinach and tortellini cheese bake.


And pudding was a creamy (soaked overnight) Tiramisu!


And they all managed to return to the painting table after that and carry on!

A really successful day.
