Well, I mentioned that I was due to have a botanical art workshop from Friday until today. Are interested in how it went?
I have been allowed to take the following pictures and you can judge from these how it went. I and the people who came, would obviously be very interested in your feedback, so please comment.
Some of the subjects.
As usual, we took a photo once the position of the subjects had been arrived at. As I have suggested previously, it is worth doing this as we are painting from living things and they change over time. If something wilts, we can replace that element and if we knock something out of position, we can re-arrange. We still paint from living subjects.
Enjoying the company and the opportunity to paint.
Malus Gorgeous – coloured pencil
A pear plus Malus Gorgeous and Golden Hornet crab apples – Coloured pencils.
I think that you will agree that these are lovely pictures that are well on their way to completion. But, what is even more amazing is that some of the students had not done much in the way of their chosen medium previously and they accomplished so much in this one workshop. It was exciting to watch them develop. No wonder I enjoy teaching!
