Fabulous Fish Watercolour

We tried something new this week, Fabulous Fish with sparkly, glittery iridescent paints.

We started the morning having a play with them, we had SAA paints in silver, pearl and gold plus some iridescent paint powder that we mixed with gum arabic before applying.

After we had chosen our 'fish' and sketched it onto the lovely heavyweight paper from St Cuthberts Mill, Claire demonstrated the first wash, 

below is one of the paintings with the fish and waterlilies drawn out with masking fluid on their outline and some beautiful colours in the wash

others made the fish their focus and worked on the painting of their fish, putting their colours on first



It was lovely to have the sunshine back today, I took time after the class to have a wander round the grounds to see what is starting to blossom.

Claire is back next week for Atmospheric Scottish Landscapes, we have some spaces available, come and join us, suitable for all levels including beginners.

9:30am - approx 3pm
All materials, a 2 course lunch and a glass of wine included.
