A great day where David Reynolds took the class through the process of painting a magnolia flower. A hands on workshop with great advice and teachings from the tutor explaining each step of the painting with tips and tricks along the way. Highly recommend. Also great morning tea!
Great class teaching how to paint Australian eucalyptus in watercolour, you learn some basic and more advanced techniques. Small class size is great providing you with opportunities to ask questions and get feedback on your work. I wish it was a little longer (maybe 3 Saturdays instead of 2) as the time given was not enough for all the demonstrations and finishing our paintings. Otherwise a great class where you will learn many new techniques and tricks to start or further develop your painting skills!
