Report from the first painting summer school
We all had the most fantastic time with Jane Blundell's Boot Camp. Jane has a wonderful in depth knowledge of the properties of all the various watercolour paints available. We all learnt an amazing amount about pigments and colour generally, with lots of valuable exercises and some great help with painting and drawing outside. See here for comments from the participants and some images of the workshop. Jane is returning next year to give another boot camp as well as a possible 3 day follow-up class (more info to follow when we have her dates)... lots of us were very keen to take part in this!
