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.
