I’ve been attending a weekly watercolour course at Heatherlys for two weeks now. We have started with Still Life and have worked on the typical subjects. Vases, flowers, fruit and veg plus jugs and more flowers. The course is interesting but gentle and I’m not really moving out of my comfort zone yet. However a whole days painting is exhausting and I come back home with headaches from the concentration.
The course is forcing me to think about alternative treatments, lets me view other artists work and receive support and direction from my tutor. All very interesting.
Below are a couple of works from the lessons.
