Spring Sustained Saturday Watercolour Class – April 3


…of cabbages and things! It was nice to be back at the Arts on Adrian studio yesterday. I must have been hungry when I set up the still life and, by the end of the day, the students had done some delicious paintings.

As you can see on my demonstration sheet, I painted a few studies of some of the vegetables. I also discussed cool and warm whites as white had a large role in our subject. You can barely see the whites on the left side of my sheet.

The students showed a real appetite for the subject matter. The challenge of the whites was met with success and everyone had fun looking at each other’s treatment of the cabbage. We relished some lovely watercolour paintings when we sat down for our critique.
