|The Gardener - watercolour|
So, you guessed it I chose the second option.
Inspiration from one of my fav shows, "Monty Don's Around the World in 80 Gardens" was my subject... a BBC produced series featuring gardener Monty Don, leading the viewer on an exploration tour of spectacular gardens worldwide.
Splashing on singing colour with the first wash, I could almost could hear the birds singing...things were going swimmingly! As I continued (in my own mind, though I didn't let on) things progressed downhill from there. The lesson I learned yesterday is that it's okay when you're students see you fall...it shows them that it happens to everybody. As Joann (one of the participants) put it yesterday: "Nobody dies". ha ha ha.
