‘Photo Format’ of the ‘En-Plein Air’ Painting Class at Blisland.’

The last day of the term at the ‘Blisland’ Watercolour Class, was a beautiful morning, and the planned exercise was a sketching and painting exercise in 15 minutes.  After a practice run indoors the learners went outside with sketchbooks and paint palettes and completed some further quick sketches ‘en plein air’.

The first set of images are of the learners themselves dotted around the heart of Blisland, sketching and paintings speedily, the second group of images are of the actual speedy paintings and sketches.  They all enjoyed the experience and have said that its something that they would do in the summer holidays.

And here are the quick sketches they all produced, on a lovely morning in Blisland.

Learners Paintings on the ‘Right Road’.

This weeks class subject matter, was for the Students to produce ‘Watercolour Paintings of ‘Wheels in varying condition / state’s of repair. As you can see the majority decided to produce paintings of wheels that have ‘seen better days’, BUT what they did produce were incredibly ‘Characterful’ / Life like Paintings, showing real Artistic Flair.

I am extremely pleased with their end results, Well Done Everybody.

‘Arty Learners’ Christmas Cards 2018

A little late, but as promised, here are the Painted Christmas Cards received from my learners, for Christmas 2018.  Some traditional and some not, they are not in any order, and you need to view them all.

Some were printed by a local print company’s, from the actual paintings and some were originals made into cards.

As always, I was pleased to receive each and every one.

Congratulations to each learner that they belong too, well done.
