Last month we went to our local art gallery and museum to see some of the exhibitions on at the moment. I was interested to see the watercolour exhibition, having had a little more experience of watercolours in my art journaling course last year. David Remfry is a master of watercolours and I spent a long time looking at the picture which is on the poster above - called Anna. It was fascinating to see how he had used the paper and washes of colour to outline her face. There were full length watercolours too and I haven't seen large scale works like that in this medium.exhibition by Jeanette Killner, who was one of my teachers on the Foundation in Art and Design course I did. She was the 2D tutor and encouraged me with my felt making. Her own art involves aluminium drinks cans which she heats to bring out the rainbow-like colours. Chris really liked the fish above, but that wasn't for sale.
I really enjoyed seeing the exhibitions and may well go back before they move on or close.
