"The Artist In You" : Workshop 2012

Sharons Bouquet

I am certain anyone reading my blog from todays workshop will be taken aback to see I have returned to my studio,and yes, I am still painting!

I unpacked my car from a fabulous watercolour workshop today only to realise I had meant to show Sharon how to paint  some gorgeous pink flowers that were delicate and so pretty. Unfortunately we were side tracked all day with other subjects and techniques from demonstrations. It was only when I was re arranging all the flowers from my sessions this week that these  blooms caught my eye.

Sharon if you are reading my blog, I found Opera Rose along with the violet we all didn't like at first in todays group and then fell in love with was superb for the petals. I have allowed a feeling of movement  by using this mornings first washes technique which worked really well. 
Cadmium Yellow and Cerulean Blue make the foliage colour.

I have achieved buds by not painting buds as in an earlier demonstration today.

And now I just need to add the darks which is what we were discussing about your own paintings.

It was a truly inspirational day and I can't wait to get into my studio and work tomorrow morning!
