'Dusk Watercolours' classes at City Lit. We spent most of the time practising colour mixing and mark making in room 109 which appropriately had interesting marks along the wall ( above). Although I'm pretty experienced in watercolours it's good to have a refresher and try different colour combinations (I've rather set in my ways!) and there's always something new: 'aquapasto' is now on my shopping list. Interesting work from the tutor Hilary Rosen too.
Window gardens with benches and seating, gentle murmur of jazz and people talking quietly. A half of Moor Black IPA and a piece of walnut cake assisted in my mood and I spent the rest the evening comfortably painting badly

Normal service on blogging will resume shortly - lots to catch up with after a very busy few weeks: orchid site visits( and a film premiere); Hampton Court Flower show; Bellowhead; more indigo dyeing; international moss conference.
I've also been getting to grips with my new tablet - have worked out how to load and reduce size of photos but my attempts at blogging resulted in deleting my post on RA Summer exhibition!!
Tomorrow I start my 'Dusk Watercolours' class at City Lit -preparation for another week of painting seascapes at Slapton in 2 weeks time.
