Botanical Exercises with Ann Blockley

Cherry Blossom
 Class this week got into the garden
with a bit of Botanical work following the teachings of Ann Blockley in her book
Experimental Flowers in Watercolour

 Great technical experiments with additional texture mediums such as granulation fluid, rock salt and cling wrap. 

Still a bit of a way to go with timing when to apply additional mediums to get the right texture I am after, but not to unhappy about these first attempts.

Ann isn't afraid of a depth of colour, 
or even a conflicting tone which suites the style
 I one day hope to achieve with my work.

Would love to get to a workshop
but alas she is in England !
