" Animals Only " June Workshop 2010

Just an eye?

Today I am holding my "Animals Only" workshop and I am so looking forward to it. We  will be looking at techniques for painting eyes that shine with life, noses that are so realistic you wish to touch them and ways to make fur and skin seem really creatively fascinating. All of course in pure watercolour.

The  venue is all ready and the workshop has been fully booked for some time now as a favourite session.

It is one of those days when I want to sit in the class as well as teach it because I adore this subject so much.

I wonder if there will ever be a day when I don't feel this rush of  enthusiasm about picking up a brush and this heady excitment of knowing you are going to give everyone around you a great day? Instinctively I know this will be one of my favourite ever sessions and most memorable. Not because of what I demonstrate or paint but from what everyone who comes to me paints too because their enthusiasm is as strong as mine.

How wonderful !

" How To Paint Colour and Light in Watercolour " my first book will be launched at the Mall Galleries, London, U.K. on 7th July 2010 where I will be demonstrating during the SWA Society for Women Artists Annual Exhibition.  I will be signing copies which will be available  at the gallery to purchase. Everyone is welcome on this very special day!

Thank you AK, I work with as little brushwork as possible to tell the story. I enjoy creating by capturing the essence of a subject with a sense of emotion in each painting very much.
