|Glendhu Bay, Lake Wanaka|
This last weekend I ran my first workshop! And I'm happy to report I have 5 new converts to the magic of painting outside.
Day 1 was spent at 2 different locations at Glendhu Bay on Lake Wanaka. We did 4 small paintings in the morning learning about aerial perspective, the steps for painting a watercolour landscape, and how to paint watercolour skies. In the afternoon we did a larger painting of the iconic view of Mt Aspiring from Glendhu Bay.
Day 2 we sketched the historic old chapel at Cardrona, and I taught students my tricks for dealing with linear perspective in real life. Their finished paintings knocked my socks off!
The weather held, the views were beautiful, and I couldn't have asked for a better bunch of enthusiastic, hardworking, aspiring artists. I got to share my passion for sketching outside, and now they're all buying supplies and setting up sketching dates. Yay! Can't wait to do another workshop :-)
