Another month, another workshop! I was very pleased to have got a place on this on, I'm an admirer of Deb Walker's painting, with its dramatic subjects, vast scale (especially for watercolour) and intense contrast. Deb puts much knowledge and science into her work, and like most artists, has an insatiable curiosity as to how other artists create certain effects. This particular workshop focussed on Turner's watercolours and in which order he painted the parts: washes, detail, body paint etc. Deb demonstrated a few techniques which we then attempted, with varying degrees of success, to recreate. It was all subtle stuff and I was amazed with one technique in particular, that of laying multiple warm and cool glazes to create an illusion of depth in a sky. I enjoyed the day listening to Deb tell an assortment of amusing tales from her tutoring classes and learning much from this talented painter.
