Pussy Willow Workshop

Pussy Willow Workshop (2011)

Each participant spent an entire day working on a pussy willow painting from start to finish. What we learned...pussy willows are more challenging to paint than just a “puff on a stick” as one of the artists exclaimed!

We “chirped” and chatted while painting our chickadee paintings...

It is amazing how differently each participant painted his/her background, and how each painting evolved into a beautiful piece of art!

Winter Snow Scene Workshop
Winter Snow Scene Workshop (2012)

We were thankful that there was no snow outside as we painted our beautiful winter scenes! Many of us saw interesting shapes develop as ponds were added... resulting in laughter and consternation at times! After creative individual planning, the paintings evolved into beautiful winter scenes once again!

We will all be looking at clouds so differently from now on! This day was spent studying cloud structure, and colours in clouds. The paintings all turned out uniquely beautiful after another wonderful day painting together!
