Great beginner water colour class. The tutor was lovely and taught us techniques which we used to create a landscape which I?m really thrilled with.

What a lovely morning! Jennifer was such a lovely teacher and made us feel relaxed and enthused to ?have a go?. We enjoyed the informal atmosphere and despite it being a small group, we bounced ideas and shared our work to support us through the techniques. I would definitely recommend to other nervous beginners and we are already booked on our next challenge 😃

Title or Location: Twilight in Penarth
I used to live in Penarth, and find it an interesting town by the sea, with lovely shopping, eclectic coffee shops, parks, and of course the wonderful pier. I am also fascinated by the wonderful lamps in Britain and beyond, their history and intricate designs. Hence this lovely lamp, taken from its neighbours, to stand proud and alone, but with the outline of the pier behind to illustrate its context of Penarth.

Chasing the sunset. I'm an artist and mother with a great love of running. Since becoming a mother in 2021, my free time has dwindled into near non-existence. So, when I do get out for a run, I always want to make the most of it. With little time to train, my exercise had been condensed into early mornings and evenings around my boy's sleep times. Despite the less favourable timing this has brought with it the glorious benefit of gorgeous winter sunrises and sunsets across the water.Alon

I usually work with soft pastels and, recently started trying out watercolour. I discovered that although it's an unpredictable medium, I love the soft hues of watercolour washes. I became fascinated with learning the techniques involved with gold leaf embellishment and added just a smidgeon

Title or Location: Never sure when the east me meets the west me
Bandra Arts Born in Mumbai, I spent my first year of life in an orphanage before being adopted and raised in the UK. Now based in Cardiff, I draw inspiration from my Indian roots and the natural world that surrounds me. My art is a fusion of ancient Indian art techniques and contemporary styles, resulting in vibrant pieces filled with rich colours and intricate details.

Title or Location: Gracie
I find painting dogs very interesting because their appearance is so varied. This golden doodle is from a friend's photo of her pet Gracie. I painted a loose background in watercolours then painted negatively to pick out the wavey and curly areas of her coat. Gouache picked out some lighter areas. I find painting without a drawing creates a looser result. I start with the nose and measure from there.

Two days before hurricane Beryl made landfall on the Texas coast, the first outer band hit Houston with thunder, lightning and pouring rain. The sky darkened too and turning to my brushes helped me deal with the anxiety. It was also good practice for working with masking fluid.

Title or Location: In my living room
Once COVID hit, and we knew we weren't going anywhere, my family & I decided to get chickens. We picked out these 3 chicks from a local farm. We created a brooder in our living room, and my kids enjoyed creating a parkour/maze for them to run around in. During a moment of rest, I captured a photo of them & knew that I wanted to paint it one day. Additional info - watercolor on Arches, size 8x8
