A small demonstration piece from last week looking at how to create gorgeous colour effects from a simple first wash. This will be a doddle to turn into a juicy berry painting.
This is a little reminder to all the artists who came on my workshops last week. How many of you have continued to practise the exciting and varied washes I demonstrated?
At the side of our long drive there is the most amazing large holly tree that is fully laden with very heavy berries at the moment. Last year birds swooped and devoured the lot before I could paint any so by this time next week I hope I will have had a chance to pant a few holly sprigs before they all disappear!
Please keep practising and please keep moving those brushes. Make using them fun and consider which colours can make a more vibrant result!
