The techniques used for today's pictures, painted in class, were very new to us as they were so 'loose'.
 It was one of the best painting sessions we've had as Steve demonstrated one but we did the second independently. Two paintings completed in one lesson!!!!  Incredible but great!

Here are the masterpieces, two ballerinas.  Such fun to paint!

My latest paintings

It is such a long time since I put anything new on my blog I've almost forgotten what I have to do.

Today finished a picture that I painted originally beside a river at 'The Moulin' whilst on holiday almost 6 years ago.  My painting skills have developed somewhat since then and I decided to paint the scene again.
This was my first attempt and I was very pleased with it at the time.

.....and here is the version I finished

I'm particularly pleased with hte improvement to the water also the depth of colour and the contrast in the light.
