Green still life - Next class 26th January

We're going to be concentrating on GREEN for the next couple of classes.  This next week will be a still life class.

 

We're hoping to get a good variety of greens with a mix of natural and man-made objects if everyone brings a couple of things each.

Hydrangeas in glass - Next class 10th November

Following a riot of autumnal colours over the last few classes, we're going to concentrate on delicate layering for the next class to paint hydrangea heads in glass vases or jars.  Rosie can supply the hydrangeas - please bring along a suitable glass container if you have one you'd like to paint.

More leaves - Next class 3rd November

To take full advantage of the autumn colours, we're going to paint leaves, conkers, chestnuts and things again.  We enjoyed the freedom that painting large scale on lining paper gave us in the last class so we're going to try to maintain that feeling in this class but on our good watercolour paper.

 

NO CLASS 27th OCT AS IT'S HALF TERM

 

10am Thursday 3rd November

Southgate Community Centre Small Hall, Bury St Edmunds

 

Theme:  Large scale leaves

Large scale - Next class 20th October

As the leaves are definitely on the turn, we're going to paint them in LARGE scale.  Bring along the biggest paper you have - lining (wall)paper works well - and a few autumn coloured leaves, acorns, conkers or any nice windfall.  Just be prepared to paint BIG!
