We had a lovely day painting sunflowers and cornflowers with Sue in her ‘loose’ style. She is a very calm, relaxed teacher and we thoroughly enjoyed being taught by her. Here you can see Sue demonstrating and us working along.
Firstly Sue applied masking fluid with a toothbrush to the sunflower heads before painting them. Then she used some salt after the paint had been applied (whilst still wet). At a later stage clingfilm was laid on to suggest the lower leaves and stalks. Click on her finished sunflowers to see the effects.
Our own efforts are further down the page and the standard is high, thanks to excellent instruction.
Here are our paintings, quite a lot!
And here is a painting that one of our members was working on independently
