"Yesterday " Workshop 24th Nov

We had great fun as usual in Saturdays workshop...a mix of new students and ones that have been before. Above you can see Jane adding her horizon line to her wonderful atmospheric picture...
Denise was with me for the second time--she had done oils in her workshop before so this was completely different! She chose to do the bright vibrant oranges and reds--my favourite!
Karen comes down from Mansfield with her lovely Mum Sandra...Karen chose the beautiful blues and purples and quickly had a lovely dramatic painting happening.
Bev was painting her picture as a combined birthday/Christmas pressie for a friend of hers--I'm sure she will be delighted when she opens it!
Paul has attended a previous oil workshop with his sister Elaine....however he really found his forte here in acrylics--it seemed almost effortless, a beautiful sky and water were soon done.....and his tree was just stunning-cant believe he hasn't been painting for years!
Elaine was using acrylics for the first time--she seemed to manage the acrylics fine like her brother--brilliant sky with some wispy clouds..and gentle water with just a touch of metallic to make the water shine...
Charlotte's daughter had booked her in after seeing my exhibition at Bishops Castle and picking up a leaflet...I felt that she wouldn't manage a huge 40 in wide canvas as its quite a physical painting to do--and luckily I had a smaller 20in x 16in canvas on the van. She managed that quite well and really enjoyed her session..
Sandra created a beautiful painting,,,lots of light in it --we always have a lot of laughs with Sandra and daughter Karen....and Saturday was no exception!
We met Bill at Shobdon Food and Drink Festival-his wife bought him a gift voucher and this was the one he fancied having a go at....the photo doesn't do this painting was dark and moody and the light coat of silver metallic on the water just bought it to life...brilliant result Bill..
Well Done--brilliant results everyone!
Brilliant--Camera shy Karen has managed to hide behind her mum!
