Dedham Hall 2012

"Arab Face"
Demonstration by Jean Haines at Dedham Hall 2012

My blog has fallen quiet as I have been away taking a one weeks watercolour course at Dedham Hall which was a superb experience. In the past I have heard so much about this fabulous venue but as my schedule has been really hectic until now, this is the first year I have been able to teach a course there.

The days seem to fly by. There were wonderful people attending the week long workshop. Each day we looked at new subjects and I had time to spend individually tutoring everyone who came.  I have many highlights as memories that will stay with me forever including laughing whilst painting tomatoes by a greenhouse in the garden, a very funny duck story and paintings that flowed and improved with skill as the week wore on.

Because I cover many subjects on my workhops I never know what to expect during each session but a favourite demonstration has to be the face above,asked for by Valerie which held the groups attention while the character appeared from a colourful first wash.

Bookings are already being taken for my course there in September 2013 so if you would like to join me there next year, please get in touch via this link

To anyone reading my blog who came this year.it genuinely was fantastic meeting you and I hope your brushes are already moving this week!
