It really is incredible how my new online art school is evolving in only the two short weeks it has been open. The international membership is wonderful but what really is a delight to see is the warm friendly atmosphere in the community forum. Here members share their art work and I am in a position to give feedback and encouragement when needed. I’m also really delighted to have a place to share extra additional tips. Because there is now a special category for members called “Jeans Inspiration” where I add further tips and yes, inspirational ideas. When filming the tutorials I include as much information as possible but just as in a workshop you don’t always see what is an obstacle to others until you witness the results from the demonstrations. Creative Washes have always been a huge part of my watercolour technique and I am loving being asked how to use them. This week I shared the above Spring painting created from a wash deliberately painted for the subject and explained how I work. I am planning on sharing many more additional tips to keep everyone’s brushes moving. Members may think they have signed up for two tutorials a month but I plan on giving far more. If you are a member, see you in school! If not, please consider coming and joining the watercolour party. On a more serious note we are living in very unusual times. Please stay safe!
