Rose Buds and Daisies painted in Watercolours
Happy Mums Day xx
Here is the demo piece I painted on Wednesday. I have taken the scissors to it!
Did a little cropping and tried to look at the negative shapes instead of the positive.
The class on Wednesday was a little different, trying to concentrate on what I find a challenging subject.
Was not helped by no Electric on, an Electrician in and out, catching the easel when he passed by.
He did look slightly bemused at gentleman with hairdryers in hand, but he did not know they were drying their precious paintings.
Next came a school cook banging by on the way to an oven that was pinging to let her know the playschool flapjack was ready. This is all going on while I'm trying to figure out am I using Opera Rose or Permanent Rose and do I mask out the daisies.
Usually it's all peaceful with just the tinkering of brushes against jam jars full of water.
Sometimes demonstrating does make me smile.
Last week I had a high up forestry person, walk in on a demo, come and stand at the front and look at the tree I was painting and asked ' Is this an Ash in Autumn ?
Looking up startled ' No I replied it's a Jane Ash Tree
That got him thinking!
