The Olympics are over so it’s back to the beach…even if it’s only in my imagination.

Definitely an experimental afternoon first day back in the studio today.

Lessons from the Great Masters Day 14 – 20.7.15 matted and framed

In July 2015 working my way through Tony Smibert and Joyce Townsend’s Tate Watercolour Manual: Lessons from the Great Masters, this lesson was titled Painting onto coloured paper: watercolour heightened with gouache.  The book was introduced to me by my friend the inspiring artist and teacher Debi Riley from Perth Australia.  Thanks again Debi 🙂
