Spring Tuesday Watercolour Class – Week Five!


This is a slightly simplified version of the still life from last Saturday as the Tuesday students have only three hours and not a whole day to develop their work. The essence is the same; warm colours set off by cool.

I’ve been discussing process a lot this term. I went back a few weeks with the small study on the left. It’s an attempt to understand the colour relationships in the still life. The study on the right is somewhat more elaborate, a quick watercolour sketch that harkens back to last week’s notions about risk-taking and spontaneity.

Did I say three hours? I pinned up the work for the AM critique and stepped back. I was quite impressed with the volume and quality produced in just a few hours. There weren’t as many students in the evening class but they also applied themselves and came up with some lovely work.
