Inspired by David Hockney’s swimming pool paintings and by folks recent holiday adventures tonight we looked at how to draw water in pools or still water with reflection… rather beautiful wet on wet washes, white pastel lines as a resist and some gorgeous colour mixes. Thanks 🙏 everyone for another great evening (even in the heat!!)
Visit to Somerset House to see the summer exhibition of young Uk artists 14-18years who meet every Saturday to create amazing art, design, engineering and writing. Here is some of their work and just to say how heartening it is to see this future generation of creatives engaging at such a high level with some top practitioners in a diverse range of studios from technology to architecture.
This evening everyone experimented with dry brush, scratching, washes and background washes. Thanks everyone!
Thanks to caterina for these exciting colour mixes wet on wet. Then she added gold foil and painted her plant tendrils
