It is important to remember that this course is all about loosening up and at the same time focusing on observation and imagination……Shown here is just a fraction of the work completed…including the all important sketch books that everyone carried with them at all times.
Once again the list of Janet Weight Reed tips and sayings given to everyone at the beginning of a course.
The following are watercolours/sketches made by the group last week in Olhao Portugal. See previous post for an overview of the week…..
Jayanthi.…has been coming to my courses for sometime. This vibrant watercolour was inspired by the Saturday market in Olhao.

LIZ – casting a beautiful shadow at the Mill. – I am waiting for images. Liz attended my course last October and so it was lovely to see her again…..
BRENDA – sketched all the time and made some lovely watercolours….Unfortunately I don’t have any photographs of them. A fascinating woman – Brazilian and therefore fluent in Portuguese – and a glider pilot……
MARY – who has attended my courses before, made some lovely watercolours – however again I don’t have any photographs of them…hopefully later.
Tessa and Bob are from Sydney Australia and so on their way home from Portugal they stopped in New York and bought some new paints. They are now in beautiful Vancouver where I am quite sure they are sketching every day.
These are the pigments they picked up in New York. I couldn’t finish this post without including our two non-painters Joe and Alan. They contributed so much to the week on many levels and were a great deal of fun.
Thank you one and all for a lovely week – and of course keep painting and sketching.
