Description

This week, I have bowed under the pressure and have released my most requested module!

With carefully selected reference to work from, we are going to be creating this stunning illustration of Hot Air Balloons drifting above a beautiful hilly landscape, peppered with trees and buildings.

We will be painting on top of old maps, something I have always liked doing since I was at Art School. It adds another dimension, I feel it gives the painting a sort of narrative that personalises it too.

The Map paper is a lovely smooth surface to paint on. I think you’ll really enjoy this one!

Flying high! It’s the last week of the summer holidays for us this week and it’s a week to sort, tidy and prepare for the coming term.
Over the very rainy bank holiday we had I completed another #sketchbookclub from jenniemaizels Certainly not my finest work and I found it quite tricky working freehand with the gouache and no outline to follow.
I’ve learnt lots with this one; how the gouache behaves, layering paints, brush control and shading. Great fun!

Work in progress. Preparing for the next Sketchbook Club is one of my favourite things to do. Jennie Maizels has created a gorgeous hot air balloons module where you paint with gouache straight into maps. Also, within the module, Jennie teaches a great technique for painting trees.
If you fancy joining us at Sketchbook Club on Wednesday at the Rosendale Pub in West Dulwich email me at Dulwichdoodledays@gmail.com.

All materials, snacks and a glass or two of fizz included.

sketchbookclub balloons. Found this quite difficult. Small details in gouache without a teeny tiny brush were hard and the humidity meant the paint was taking forever to dry and kept muddling. 🤷🏼‍♀️ also made a 🐷 👂🏻 of sticking the map in the book but you can’t win them all. #sketchbookclubballoons ...

Made a very small start on the latest module for Sketchbook Club - hot air balloons! Since mine are flying over a very green map of Northern France and Belgium, they needed a bit of a white acrylic undercoat in preparation for loads of lovely bright colours.
