Art Workshop in Woodbury...... plus Paint Party Friday

Pleased to be back joining in with Paint Party Friday today - with many thanks to EVA & Kristin for hosting....

and now a catch up on my recent watercolour workshop (last Saturday)  run
by Matthew Palmer professional art instructor.  Again this was held in the village hall at Woodbury and well worth the trip down there for it.

The scene we painted was a Night Time Snow Scene.  Matthew took us through the process step by step, nobody felt rushed and we worked at our own pace.


It helped that Matthew's painting was projected onto a large screen as we worked on our own ...




I think it does us good, at least it helps me, to go back to basics sometimes with painting.  I took the class from the attitude that I wanted to be open minded, learn and try out the techniques suggested.  Let's face it we all get into habits with painting.  The painting included wet-into-wet, dry brush, blending plus when completely dry we used a craft knife for highlights plus sandpaper for texture...great fun getting to do all of these.

Here's a quick pan round the hall whilst we were having a coffee break....

It was a really good day....here's my finished painting...

  1. Your painting is beautiful and I love the color of the sky. Show this painting in July. We still have snow on the ground and I'm sick of winter.

  20. That sounds a very enjoyable workshop and I love your finished paining. The blue sky-shadows on the snow give a real sense of the movement of the snow clouds.

    Our village art group has regular visiting tutors and we learn so much from trying new techniques, or just watching someone else work in detail. It fascinates me how different everyone`s paintings turn out to be.
