We welcomed our tutor, Alex Roch, to our workshop. Alex talked about the different makes of pencil and the ways you can use them. She showed us how to tackle flower painting, using a mix of drawing, sketching, adding water and washes with a brush and different mark making.
We provided buckets of flowers for members to pick from. Some brought along their own. The hall looked and smelt like a spring day (despite the unseasonal weather outside). Alex spent all day walking around, giving advice and encouragement. At the end of the day we displayed our work and Alex talked us through each person’s ‘painting’.
Here are the paintings we produced.
