Watercolours With Life June 2010 Workshop

 "Delphinium Rhapsody"
Original Watercolour by Jean Haines


I spent a wonderful day holding a "Watercolours With Life" Workshop yesterday and it was for me a memorable day in many ways.

I am always thrilled to meet such wonderful people on these sessions. Bookings come via email normally so until the actual day of the workshop I haven't a clue who is going to be in the class. This time there were a few familiar names and some completely new to me. I thought driving three and half hours to  make my DVD was a long way to go but one lady  had driven for over six hours from Scotland to come to my session so when I make my next trip to film I will be thinking about that and how lucky I am the studio is so near!

I did love the day which I will share in another post with new images. But for now I must mention how  special it was to meet face to face those who I have only communicated with on my blog until now.

I wonder if we all sit and type imagining that when we press the send button our words will disappear into  cyberspace and not be read.To hear personally how a blog is enjoyed is such a unique experience. And it urges me to share even more.

To everyone who came on the session yesterday it was fantastic to meet you and I truly hope you left feeling inspired and will be painting non stop now with amazing results. 

I certainly can't wait to pick up my brushes this morning!

Goodness - Such a lovely compliment! Thank you so much! I have been practicing a Delphinium since my return a few days ago from Cornwall and I am quite pleased with how it's going. I wish I had asked for a copy of the pink flower I started because I really like the petal I painted, but I can't finish it!
