Aquarelle, Tuesdays from 2 - 4.30pm with Marina

Working like Shirley Trevena:
Breaking the Rules... Part II

Last Tuesday the Aquarellistas we watched the second part of the great DVD about Shirley Trevena. This time she finished a watercolour painting that she created before, and finishing she did - in her exciting unconventional style, 'destroying' some beautiful parts, making them even more beautiful, in a perfectly balanced composition. 
We continued working on the existing paintings (and I had put those behind closed doors so that everyone had some distance after a week) and added a fresh bunch of tulips!
In Shirley-style this is absolutely possible, because it's all about composition and daring to do out-of-the-ordinary things...
This Tuesday we are going to finish our compositions...
...and we're going to view the last part of the video this Tuesday...
...but as you can see from the cutouts...
...the paintings are quite interesting already!
These are not all paintings but you get the point! Next week the full report on the results of this fun project that we learned so much from!!
