Watercolour on 425gsm Saunders Waterford CP Paper
28.5cm x 38cm
I am very excited as this week I am attending a two day workshop by English watercolourist Jean Haines. We are very fortunate that she has put Adelaide on her travel itinerary as normally we miss out. It means a three night stay in the city for me as I am about 90kms from Adelaide and after the workshop we are continuing on for a mini break in the coastal town of Robe.
Jean was one of the artists who I so admired when I took up watercolours with a passion back in 2011 but her style is very unique to her and it is not my wish to adopt this very loose approach even though I once would have said yes please. I am well travelled down my own road now so me taking workshops from any renowned artist is simply to have some fun, pick up useful tips to add to my own bag of tricks and move on. The workshop material list says Arches Rough paper so this will be my own challenge as I have not used anything but Cold Press for more than a year.
My next blog update will be in about two weeks when I will tell you how I got on.
