A Working Watercolour – What is this?
Watercolours over the ages have been used by Artists to capture their immediate fresh image of a landscape or portrait – and then often this is transposed into an Oil painting on canvas! Very much an old Masters technique – and this is the same today ………. come and learn how this piece of Work – taken from images of Lake Tekapo – shared by a client whose fond memories of this lake were driving this decision to have a painting, and understand how you can translate your images from one medium to the other AND/OR just enjoy the Watercolour !!! 🌞 Remember – BillyKart Restaurant is open for Breakfast so not need to go hungry – drop in and order breakfast and have it while you paint or grap a tea and coffee to warm you up – all welcome in the Studio – but come a little before 10am to get set up and organised!
