A challenging lesson today building up colour and tone to create light and atmosphere using a variety of techniques. Not easy to do but the results were beautiful.

Inspiring and exciting to see how Cressida Campbell uses watercolour for her beautiful woodblock prints. By mixing lots of opaque Chinese white with other colours she is able to create a thicker layer that transfers onto the paper. The results are stunning. Last week of the show. See it if you can.
