Tuesday Watercolour Class – Week One

Our first Tuesday watercolour classes of the Spring term began today. I started everyone off with a drawing lesson. Here’s an analysis of the box with the beveled edge in three steps. It’s followed by a value study of the box in a slightly different attitude.


The still-life objects are made from cardboard. I bought them at a dollar store. They’re obviously not very colourful but they take the light beautifully so they’re a great subject for a value study. Add a little bit of imagination, as many of the painters did today, and the possibilities are endless.

    Some very impressive work here. The introduced/imagined colour is often very bold and expressive. Delightful!
