Castlerigg stone circle Demonstration

Castlerigg Stone Circle 

Here is the demonstration piece from this mornings class. 
Yet another view of the famous Circle of stones, this time a close up of the stones. A limited palette of Ultramarine, Permanent Rose, Burnt and Raw Sienna and a touch of Cerulean. In this view I enjoyed painting a more atmospheric and misty background. The stones were aided by a palette knife.

It was my last class with this friendly group of artists before we head off to the French Alps. 
It is amazing what you learn from painting in a group and seeing everyone's different perspective and personality show in their work but best of all seeing their work grow with confidence.

A watercolour class in the Lakes that you don't need to leave home for.
