Another demonstrating day at The Savill Garden

Friday the 19th September saw Gill and I back at The Savill Garden for our third demonstration day.

Progression on our demonstration pieces is coming along quite nicely, Gill is working on some beautiful autumn berries...

 
...and my piece is of two Echinacea blooms...
 
 
I'm hoping to be putting the finishing touches to this piece at our fourth and final demonstration day on the 28th September...although there is still a lot of work to do.

Demonstrating at The Savill Garden

Sunday 31st August saw Gill and I demonstrating our techniques in the Pod at The Savill Garden.

 
Gill worked on an initial sketch of a Pansy from the gardens which will eventually become a botanical watercolour, and then went on to develop a pen and ink piece. My large canvas was in the very early stages of becoming two Echinacea blooms...the central disk florets are going to be a bit of a challenge.
