Summer Day Workshop March 26th

We had great fun in this workshop ..out of the 12 students one-Joy had been 9 times before and Karen once-- all the others were first time students-though you would never know to look at the finished paintings would you?     The top photo is of Alistair and Leanne, Jill and Kim..    Everyone tackled it in their own way-bashing and tickling the sky,some more subtle than others...but that is the beauty of this painting-there are so many ways to make it your own!

So many variations--some chose a more turquoise sea, some green bushes and some brown bushes..      Everyone managed to use the knife to create the waves very quickly--the knife is the hardest thing you will ever do in one of my workshops--but as long as you keep it level and don't go up and down with it you will be fine!         I think everyone was amazed at their results as usual, pretty much everyone walks in saying ''I can't paint'' but they all realise pretty quick that they can!
