My April - May Update in Photographs

April and May have been incredibly busy and there has been little time for posting on my blogs so here is a brief summary using just photos of some of my art activities and adventures.

Schmincke and Holbein 
Watercolour Demonstrations
It was great meeting Anke Heintz yesterday (all the way from Germany) in Ottawa at DeSerres to talk about Schmincke watercolours.  
I attended the Holbein artist demo at Wallack's with North American rep Jamie-Lou
I purchased a primary-colour set of Holbein Acryla Gouache to experiment with.

  Life Drawing at the Rooster 
I attended Life Drawing at the Atomic Rooster ... 2, 3, 5, 10 and 20 minute poses from three different models. I love experimenting and playing with different papers & materials : pencils, watercolours, gouache and fountain pen.
