- Hair dryer to dry your work between layers
- Backing board (core board or similar from Bunnings) and tape to manage your paper – we don’t use an easel we tape the paper to the backing board so we can move the paper and tilt or turn as needed to manage your paint and water.
Paper towel to wipe up your spills – BYO your own lunch – or buy local we will not be supplying tea and coffee as first suggest – just to protect us all from possible covid problems.
Discover the story that compelled you to pick up your brushes and paint the scenery – capture the essence in abstract or real time, an image from your travels or a postcard – Wyn will share her secrets in creating light and mood – skies that lift and change – shadows on the ground – like the
‘Croft Cottage – Scotland’ after travels in 2019!
Or – the moody Foreshore of Cairns we recently visited for the Australian Watercolour Muster – 2021-
‘Where Curlews Call’
