I have been to two of the water colouring classes now and my dread of having to do a still life on lesson one turned out to be a reality. The tutor could see I wasn't happy with an apple and a banana so gave me an old metal railway sign which was advertising a wine with a picture of a grape vine with grapes hanging on it.
We finished our still life in the second lesson so here is my first efforts at water colour painting. When I got it home I couldn't resist adding a butterfly to it. Well it would have been rude not to!!
Not exactly a master piece but it's a start. I'm more at home with oils and there is a different technique to using water colours. Next lesson we are painting flowers which is much more in my comfort zone so watch this space as they say.
