The tulips continue- with friends…

A drawing and painting class. The last in the studio before lock down…

Painting by Tina – Not complete. But still… Lovely.

We started with drawings. Working toward a good composition that could be translated into watercolour painting.

Three tones… Plus pattern.

The drawings were really engaging and most people worked on them longer than I expected. Starting with a linear composition and adding three tones of shading. Looking for areas of close subtle tones and also counterchange. Light against dark to dark against light drama and contrast.

Then painting in monochrome.

It was a really enjoyable lesson. The most difficult part, translating the sketches to the watercolour paper was achieved well in most cases.

The progress through the last few week was quite visible. Still maintaining good flat and graduated washes. Wet in wet. All that, as well as more complex subjects and composition. They did well. (And had a good time.)
