Painting for relaxation (June workshop), watercolour

Whoops…I  have not put my next workshop on my blog yet and I have promised blog visitors I would keep workshops listed. This is almost full but I may run it twice in June (or one early July) if the need is there. Please phone to book in.


Due to the success of my workshop  Watercolour with a Zen Influence ( see works on my blog… look in archives under watercolour and scroll down….… some were by absolute beginners) I will run a similar workshop, but not  the same scene, in June. The approach is relaxing and meditative if the painters allow themselves to become absorbed in the process and go with the flow. The session will incorporate a basic understanding of Zen principles or approaches to meditation to assist with this.  

Full day 10 a.m. till 3 p.m.                                                                                                                  Forth Art Studio, 51 George St, Forth                                                                                                 ph 64282675 mob 0419282673                                                                                                          $45 includes half sheet Saunders Waterford 300gsm watercolour paper, use of paints , brushes etc. (but bring your own gear if preferred)                                                 (tea/coffee provided, BYO lunch or purchase at local shop)

Watercolour bookmarks: shells

           I was working on trying to complete a watercolour and inktense pencil work of beach pebbles and shells while at Penguin Market last Sunday. The work was started at Deloriane Craft Fair (Nov 2011) and is still not quite finished but it’s looking OK. I also did these couple of quick bookmarks… drawing shells and flooding intense watercolour into the background. Relaxing to do!
