Join Linda to learn how to mix neutral colours perfect for capturing the subtle, rich tones of autumn. Linda will show you how simple it is to mix these colours and how to paint a study of a fallen leaf.

Pen and Watercolour Crabapples

 

Nature is such a rich source of inspiration. See how Linda has chosen to record crabapples from the garden with pen drawing and luscious washes of watercolour. There’s no edit on this one, you’ll see the whole precess from start to finish. She’s working in her sketchbook, but you could easily work on loose sheets of paper or in an altered book if you prefer!
