Last week the aquarellistas worked within the theme 'spring'... it was terrific fun! Flowers and birds were popular and appeared in many varieties... Above Agnes's love birds. True love in beautiful transparent colours. The foliage is washed out for extra spectacular result, if that isn't love I don't know what is!...
Brigitte really worked on the feeling of spring, which she expressed in these tulips and their delicate light.

Another work in progress, very funny birds with an odd one out, always nice. Painted in Liz's distinguishing colourful style - still with lots of masking fluid, but their naughtyness is 'peeping' out...

She worked a long time, very carefully, on these wonderful feathers - the girl has admirable patience, Unbelievable that she actually just started with watercolours!

once again parading
