Inspired by Duane Keisers' latest painting, Beth-Anns' Bouquet, and Linda Roths' landscapes, I had an urge to paint flowers and greenery. Go take a look here for Duane , and for Linda here.
I should have painted a good solid hillside , but got too impatient to get the poppies in! Lots to do now, painting round them! :) What I want and what I've done are two very different things.........as usual!

David 12" x 16" Oil
Woodland wildlife....no, of course I didn't! There were some lovely squirrels and hedgehogs and various birds but I opted to paint fellow WA-er David. Good practice and I am very peased with my two hour-ish effort.
A re-visit. I painted this back in 2009, see here, and I had forgotten that I had drawn her in charcoal before, see here. I like her with more space around her....if only I had looked back before I started. I am happy though with the afternoons' work.

Rather than paint a picture, Paul opted to show us a few things he has learned to make things easier for himself, like how to simplify people and animals, paint trees and boats and birds. It made for a very interesting afternoon, which I spent mostly nodding as he reminded me of things I didn't know I knew. It made me want to reach for the watercolours.
A simple graded wash used to stunning effect.
An example of work that Paul brought along to show us.
