Amazing Anna Karin
Cute & compassionate Celina
In the meantime...
Roxane painted her first Spheres - wonderful!
Anna Karin finished her amphora using some salt. I find it absolutely breathtaking
Geneviève finished her fauvist painting. It is hard to believe that these are delicate transparent watercolours, how rich and colourful is this!

Last week's Aquarellista session was hosted by Cathie, specialist in
'textures'. See some examples above and below, all made using salt and that show the effect. The subject was
'Amphoras' and, to quote Cathie 'I thought this subject was screaming
SALT!!!!!' Which they used, with awesome effect.
'Rosemary did two amphora using salt. This was very brave , as she has never tried this before & its not the easiest technique to master. The results speak for themselves. Great job!'
Marie, one of the Thursday Aquarellistas, painted this amphora, using Ochre, burnt Sienna, Sepia - and salt. It was the first time, and she really enjoyed the effect. I especially like the texture-contrast with the table it is standing on...
Amelia (7) painted an amphora-shaped ice cream cone in Fauvist style, and while it was still wet, she used a Jackson Pollock-inspired dripping technique to make it look extra crunchy!😀
'Glen had such success with her last painting she made as a gift for her husband, she decided to make this golf related painting for a friend. There are a few details to be finished off, and masking fluid to be removed. She used things like a straw for blowing the paint to create some effect.'
As ever, Judith followed her instincts. There is nothing better than finding your own style and that’s what she has done, Bravo! She is also painting standing up at the moment which is interesting. Generally people sit to paint watercolour, but she loves to use a lot of liquid and this often works best standing.
As mentioned above, Judith just does her own thing, experimenting with lots of paint, watery and beautifully coloured. Above the perfect cauliflower, not an accident, meant to be. And below a very promising abstract, again the light and the dark borders are striking. Love it!!
