Water colour painting




After taking martha levers Colour Drop Flower class I have found myself painting as often as I can. I learnt alot from the online class and found I was very very motivated. I have just enrolled for her painting poppies class. I am finding it very difficult to paint poppies but keep trying.I am posting a few of all the flowers I have done in the last month. I say few because for every one posted there are a pile of awful ones.
I 'm hoping when I feel confident I will start trying to paint containers for the flowers at the moment I kind of invent the stems. I hope too I can get to painting lots of other things but I realise there' s so much to learn.
When summer is over and there are no more lovely visitors to distract me I will be able to contiue with my textile work.
