Our workshop today went well despite the rain outside. We were cosy and warm inside the Salvation Army premises in the village. We started by a little recapping on basic drawing techniques we did the previous month and Don, our only new member, can be seen above working on geometric shapes.

Meanwhile our other members sketched and shaded in graphite my copper kettle and coffeepot, as can be seen above.

After lunch we had an hour and a half working on various watercolour washes to get comfortable with applying paint in layers and tones. For the rest of the afternoon I offered a choice of pen and wash of inkpots I had brought along, with Anita's approval from her recent blog posting. Others chose fruit arrangements (... and we all nibbled the biscuits!!.)

Lots of coffee and tea and a lunch break later we all had lots of fun and certainly worked hard.

The over the shoulder shot of your newest student was very nice.
