Final week at Balmoral was a lot of fun… we were exploring ways of working with watercolour.
– how wet or dry or juicy to make your washes
– how different pigments behave,
– what brush to use,
– crazy techniques like scraping,splashing, splattering and speckling,
There is so much fun stuff you can do with watercolour!(this is the photo of our classroom floor at the mid class coffee break!)
We then applied some of these tricks to our surroundings – Balmoral Beach on a beautiful late spring day…one sketcher actually got onto the beach!
A couple of the regulars were not able to make it this week so we had a small group. So nice to have been at Balmoral for the last 4 weeks – it is such a peaceful spot….but it will soon ramp up (in more ways that one!)
Next week I start a 4 week sketching architecture course running 2 mornings a week, in a busy part of Sydney – the Rocks area and with larger classes. I really can’t wait! (there are still a few spaces left on Thursday morning… and honestly this is the very last time I will mention it- ok!?!)
