Dabbling in Watercolour…the sea


Had a cafe chaplaincy morning today where we learned a few techniques on achieving a beautiful seascape. Good day to remember what it’s like to be a student…if only for an hour.

Felt slightly strange to imagine an image versus drawing from life or a photo. But quite good to be creative and not worry about the end results.
