Tuesday Watercolour Class – Week Seven – Child’s Play!

Still Life-SpringTuesWk7

Well, maybe these pails and shovels are child’s play for little kids at the beach but this still life posed some tough problems for the watercolour painters. One student described it as “fiendishly difficult”.

Drawing seemed to be the biggest concern with the rakes and shovels being the main culprits. I left my pencil lines quite dark. You might be able to see them well enough to understand my analysis of these objects.

Undaunted, the students waded through sand and surf, with their buckets full of colour and imagination, and made some very exciting sand castles…er, paintings.
