"Yesterday" Workshop

Caron came down from Shrewsbury by train and I picked her up from the station--all part of the Painting My Way service! She wanted to do the blues and purples theme..first time for her painting with me though she has been to some classes elsewhere..She loved the techniques I showed her and cant wait to come again...

Phillip and his wife Pauline met me at Onslow Park Steam Rally in August..neither have ever painted before and were a little dubious as to if they could produce anything any good--as you can see Phillip got off to a great start using the browns and creams..A wonderful stormy sky is developing here...

I have to say I just loved the colours in Pauline's painting.bright and vibrant-she used the brush well and blended the colours well- you would never know she had never painted before would you?

Drying the bottoms of their paintings before the next stage..

nearly done...

Loved Sarah's painting--right from the start it took on a cold icy feel--and everyone thought it reminded them of Iceland! We saw glaciers,and the water lapping around the base of them! The moon in the finished painting peeping out around the cloud lit everything up--just beautiful!

hard at it...just adding the grasses and bunnies here..

Phillip made a great job of his painting-as did all 4 first time students--who would ever know they had not done this before?

Pauline is doing the scary bit--adding the tree!

How cute is Caron's bunny with his heart shaped tail?

Because we thought that Sarah's painting resembled Iceland she didn't really want to add a tree to her painting as there are not any trees in Iceland really--so Bill found her a small canvas in the van so she could have a go at painting a tree..

Beautiful results everyone--and thank you to Phillip and Pauline for giving Caron a lift home--turned out they lived just around the corner from each other!

Brilliant results Phillip and Pauline--

Well done ladies--beautiful paintings! Look forward to meeting you all again xPlease take a look at t My workshops coming up
