windmill - Italian watercolour workshop - week 1



"windmill"
inspired by demo of  Marina Macolina   


..........yesterday i was excited to start a weekly watercolour class in Vicenza at "OSSIDIANA" Centro Cuturale e di Espressione .... Scuola di Pitture e Disegno ACQUARELLO... it's my first Italian  watercolour course having only ever attended a couple of workshops in the UK  ... the courses are run by Toni Vedù and Marina Marcolin ...... i painted this yesterday at home  after the initial lesson and demo by Marina Macolina in class ....practicing wet in wet skies and "wet on dry" foreground .
