Paint Party Friday... Art Workshop

As I mentioned previously we had visitors staying over Easter but just before they arrived I had a place booked into a watercolour workshop. It wasn't the best of timings for me personally, as I was mentally out to lunch quite literally... planning menu's and venues for the visitors but I wasn't going to miss the workshop. 
Even though I was distracted I had a great time catching up with Sofia Perina-Miller.
I have been to a previous workshop and painted the autumn leaf (click here if you'd like to see more) using the paints and paper that Sofia recommended. 
I just love, love love them... there I've said it!
Here's Sofia giving a demonstration of her talent and unique colourful creativity.
She is so incredibly inspiring
No pencils or rubber in sight... just straight in with a loaded brush and she's away!
I could watch her all day but that's not what she wants... 
she just wants everyone to have a go, play and enjoy!
I just adore her paint box... you can see that it's lived!
She really does see that much colour in everything she sees. 
She painted a daffodil but focused more on the bulb which is the last thing I would have done, but it was spectacular and so colourful. 
Sofia makes you look at things differently... for example just take a look at her sunflower above. 
Although, as I say I had other things on my mind on the day... I wasn't happy with what I painted whilst there, so I decided to have another attempt at painting daffodils this week.
Well it's that time isn't it?
 (Aberdeen is completely covered with them on every grass verge and public grass slope. It really is a spectacular sight just now)

Thanks to Sofia and the Jack Tierny Gallery for running these great workshops. They do an amazing job providing a fantastic location, refreshments, art supplies, expertise and friendly helpful guidance and advice when needed.

I've actually produced a painting that I don't mind looking at... and that's quite something!
I'm linking up with Eva and Kristin over at the Paint Party Friday once again.
