i started attending an art class last October. The class is conducted in German with a smattering of English, but no matter. Art has its own language and the teacher is amazing.

This is my WIP

Just wow Pip, is this one of your first times painting? I love your use of colour it captures a sense of reality and makes for a picturesque setting.

Thanks, Hannah. I'd dabbled about ten years ago and produced a couple of paintings but never had a teacher. It makes a big difference when you have someone pointing out your mistakes. She has taught me a lot. she laughs because she says the English always like to paint flowers. :)

Hahaha I used to enjoy drawing sea shells with chalk instead of flowers, having someone that can point out our mistakes is invaluable to improvement. It is a very lovely painting.

Light n shade is spot on...the angle of the photo makes the door stand out..the flowers and shrubs are done with delicacy and clarity..warm colours with depth..a fine work

Thanks, Esc. the teacher was trying to explain about light and shade and it was interesting to see how her suggestions added depth to the painting.

BTW, are you still painting?

Not painting at the moment...

Have you tried stretching your paper... watercolor is so difficult to get all the elements right ..

The teacher supplies VERY heavy paper and I've not seen any of the students stretch the paper before starting to paint.

It's a shame you're not painting, esc. You produced some excellent work.

Started painting the Churchill flyover in the city an it's been earmarked for demolition now..might finish it though...

If that's a second attempt from scratch..that's amazing..if it a return to watercolor then keep going..

How about the use of tracing paper to better outline the picture? And something heavier than watercolor? That way the colors won't spill out their respective areas, making your drawing more cleaner and beautiful.

best hurry, then.
once gravity starts projects with associates, well,
down is the way of it.

It would certainly be interesting to read the poems. I added the bench because it is a similar space in my garden, and a place I go to when I seek inspiration. When my art teacher asked me about the bench I smiled and sadi: It's a place to write poetry
