This week my Spring workshops begin followed by my Annual Masterclass which takes place next week. Today I will be visiting the florist for my "Sensational Spring Flowers" session and preparing all the images for "Animal Madness " a firm favourite. I so badly want to paint so I will be envying the lucky artists in each workshop who have a full day to create because I know these are going to be days to remember for a very long time.
I have always felt passionate about watercolour but I feel at an all time high with so much that is wonderful happening in my life. I am planning to share vibrant colours and the shades that are new to my recent work. I have techniques that have evolved over the last few years that combine with tips in making subjects seem more alive along with ideas regarding compositions to make them even more unique.
My workshops have a goal of giving inspiration and bringing the best artist possible out of everyone attending. And they always without fail have that motivational effect on myself. I will be racing to paint without interruption as soon as I am in my studio again.
These are this weeks sessions.
