Portraits in watercolour…thanks to Cherry Hood!

It was a great weekend at Cherry Hood’s workshop and I was thrilled to learn a new way of painting portraits, in particular using watercolours.  It was encouraging to be able work in this new way and not have the usual battle of fumes from turps and mediums when working in oils.

These are some images of work from that weekend (portraits of Rose and Agnes) along with a painting post the workshop of Sarah.  Many thanks to Cherry for her hospitality in staying on her farm and for all the wonderful teaching over the weekend.  Very much the inspiration.  And with Winter in full swing, I am very happy to be experimenting with watercolours and enjoying working in a non-toxic environment!
