Watercolours of Lilies of the Valley

 Patience is back! She was afraid she had forgotten all about painting but, luckily (and not quite unexpected) she remembers how it's done, and look at her first this year!!

Last time the Aquarellistas got together, it was the first of May, the Day of the Workers, symbolized in France with the 'Muguet' or Lily of the Valley.  Guess what our inspiration was....

Marvellous modern interpretation by Annabel Clarke

A perfect Lillie of the Valley, with strong background, by Celina  

Marie-Claire's subtle version, the thick green background actually works well!!

Jane painted this awesome, free impression of the muguet
Michele F created two versions - based on the same example, but so different

Vanessa is back - and she has not forgotten how to paint. This amazing bunch already works!

Sylvie D. worked along with us from home - and created her version in her usual free style. Love it!

And last but by no means least, Sandra's 2 minute muguet-painting. Amazing use of wet-in-wet and negative space...

Of course there were also other projects going on:
 Brigitte fiished her poivron from the complementary colours-project

 Liz started with not one, but two water paintings! They still have some masking fluid on them but you can already see that she nailed it!

Michèle C - our Breton correspondent works with us - And How! Here's her water-project. One word: Fab!!

 Bev is back! She landed in Nice, came straight to the Hangar - and started this wonderful flower composition with peonies, gerberas and irises. A super painting!

 Sandra's beautiful Berber man is now officially finished. He is mild and wise. Very well done!
