This week we celebrate the best things that happen to the light in the landscape in winter, and how we can capture a moment from a photograph to paint from later in the warmth of home..
Hopefully at some point this weekend you found something to photograph, something which made your heart sing just a little bit.
Loving these ones that Jim let us use
Good paper . Cartridge . My favourite is this; 200gsm pad of A4 or A3.
Water, watercolour paints, gouache and watercolour pencils.
Black ink or pens
loose fat clean brushes and firm watercolour brushes
Sponge, kitchen paper to lift off colour, salt to lift paint.
Turn your photograph upside down to make it easier to see and
Copy the shapes and proportions….
Don’t name them in your head. Just Draw lovely lines . With a 2B pencil if you have one, nice and soft.
Use the time MINDFULLY whatever that might be…These are some of your photos from the weekend .
Get your paints out……..
Turn your drawing right way up and enjoy soaking parts of the paper with a little water…
Now enjoy splodging on colour into the wet and dry areas . see what happens. keep control, by dabbing on your kitchen roll.
Sprinkle salt on wet areas to create texture. rub this off when dry
Create stronger lines with watercolour pencils to add definition
Below will be your gallery Space by Friday …..
You created and made
Dug snowpiles with spades
Stayed cosy inside
Dressed in splendour with pride
You kept your eyes open,
looked between the clouds
Banking art and wonder
to share when we are allowed
Stay cosy Friends xxx
