10 wonderful people joined me for music, some mind numbing theory (sorry about that folks, but a necessary phase) and much playing and splashing with colour. We had everyone from total art beginners through to very experienced artists in other media. Challenging, fun and uplifting for me, it was a huge success!
The group named themselves "The Wild Ones" so this post is dedicated to them...you know who you are! ;-)
However, I know that some of the group do not 'do' Facebook, so I am reposting any developmental pieces I am working on to show the phases, and perhaps throw a challenge out there!
My goodness what a start to the day! Totally gorgeous pre-sunrise with intense hues and chroma with different values, Alizarin Crimson, Cadmium yellow pale, transparent orange, pthalo blue et al....
Here's a couple of pics and if anyone dare tells me this is anything but a watercolour sky....
To my students - after establishing your horizon, turn your page on the side and softly softly brush these colours onto thoroughly soaked paper, watch what happens!!
...and...meet PK1 (Pearl Kookaburra 1) who comes in for his brekky each morning, playing nice with the Maggles (Magpies - not pictured) this morning.
Have a brilliant sunshiney day!
