Gary Cook Workshop

Plein Air Watercolour Painting with Gary Cook SGFA
16 – 17 May
Day 1   It was apple blossom time in the orchard outside Hadspen village hall, and  after a slide show tutorial the group spent the day outdoors painting under Gary’s guidance.
Day 2  was wet so Gary set large colour prints on the walls and used demonstrations to guide the group with many tips from colour choice to using salt crystals.
He was a sensitive and thoughtful tutor showing the group exactly how to capture the light, as promised.  The final show of work was very impressive.
