An excellent turnout for this workshop with nearly thirty members taking part and extra tables being needed.
Lyn started by introducing the subject and asking the members to enjoy different ways of using watercolours to portray the wide range of flowers she had provided.
Because of the number involved the demonstration was given to two groups. Here different techniques were shown, using the paints to show wet on wet and other ways to use watercolour. Next she demonstrated how wax crayon, rock salt and masking fluid could add effects to the paintings. Members were then encouraged to try out these methods.
Members continued to experiment until the break and afterwards were encouraged to either focus on a small part of the plant or try a larger still life.
An enjoyable afternoon, if a little crowded. Lynn has gave a well informed and useful workshop and the group look forward to the one on watercolour landscapes at a future date.
A record of Saturday afternoon activities.
