Loose and Free Watercolour Class

Our last class of term was a Watercolour one with Claire.

Titled Loose and Free

Using plenty of water and a limited palette of colour

These pretty flowers in the stripy jug are beautiful

After lunch we switched to a Venice scene, soft washes and dark silhouettes.

At the end of the class everyone had a go at these cute little cats, no drawing just straight in with the paint .... Loose and Free ...

Dates for next term can be found on the dates page, bookings are being taken now.  Come and learn how to paint in 2019!

Acrylics - Boats on the Beach

Everyone enjoyed their Acrylics Class last week, Boats on the Beach

Great paintings, with textured sand, rolling waves and lovely skies.

We had the last of the Treetops apples in an autumnal crumble alongside pears and blackberries, delicious!
