I’ve never seen Puffins in real life, but I’ve learned they are fun to paint even if only from a photo. I don’t know who took the original picture we worked from, so I’m unable to assign credit at this time.
The exercise kept us busy over the last couple of watercolour classes, but I finished my interpretation today, during “paint day” at the cottage.
The ladies from the Evangeline Artists Cooperative braved the rains at 9:30 this morning and we painted our way into a drier but overcast afternoon. A brown bag lunch, coffee, tea, and sweets provided fuel.
One of our members remarked how lucky we were. Painting with a group is motivating and puts us in the company of many greats from history, who also had their own communities (but that’s as far as the comparison went).
If you haven’t got a group to paint with I recommend finding one or starting one. I’m very grateful for these ladies. If you already belong to a community, let me know where and how you found them, or maybe how they found you. 🙂
