I’m taking a watercolour course!

It’s only three classes, for beginners, but it’s something I’ve wanted to try for ages – so I roped a few friends into spending their Wednesday evenings with me for the next three weeks.

I’m not sure if I really have that much influence over my friends or if they thought I’d be bringing wine?

I might have mentioned that I’d bring wine…  but I didn’t apply for the liquor license….

But HEY!  It’s three kidless evenings and I’m having fun (and hopefully they are too)

Wanna see what we made in our FIRST CLASS EVER?!

Beginner watercolours, Fall theme

Nope, I didn’t draw it – we just traced it onto our watercolour paper and then “coloured” it in.

Lesson 1!

I was so excited, I came home and tried to copy another image I’d found online – the bottom photo is by the artist, the one above is my attempt.

Not too bad?

Might make a cute pillow – which are all-the-rage on Pottery Barn right now:

I got puttering with some easy shapes and came up with these pears.  The dots were supposed to be ‘artistic drips of paint’ but just look like I sneezed with the brush in-hand.

Maddie decided to join in and look what she came up with:

Watercolours 3 - 2

Yup, her first attempt.  This child is so brilliant!

Pillow-worthy?  I think so!
