I have started a new Facebook group page for my classes. Many of you have asked for a place to share you work and be able to ask questions when you feel stuck between sessions. So I’m going to try the Facebook forum and see how it goes. It is for student’s in my classes only….it is a place to share with me and with fellow classmates between classes. So for those of you who are on Facebook search for the group page “Sharing Botanicals”and join us. I will visit the site frequently and try to help out with helpful hints and tips. You can also enjoy each other’s work and questions. Have fun and be inspired.
I will also be share things I am working on during the summer break and beyond :0) I will still continue to post all updates on my website as well.
Those of you who are already on Facebook I took the liberty of inviting you into the group….you can delete your invitation if you don’t want to be part of the group…no worries :0)
I hope the rains have finally ended……phew…..what week!
I am working on a giant strawberry inspired by a website I think you will all enjoy! http://workshop.watercolourswithwow.com it is by a talented botanical artists Anna Mason. She has many wonderful videos on technique…enjoy :)
Here’s my first attempt at a video….a little shaky and blurry but fun!
Rain rain go away!!!!!!! This week is just too rainy and wet to draw at the farm. We will start next week and then go every other week after that. So sorry to have to cancel :o( Hope to see you all next week…..sigh……..
