Off the cuff demo from the imagination

Today I enjoyed showing visitors to Cam Valley Arts Trail a small sample of how I go about constructing an image from wet-in-wet watercolours and my imagination.
The hardest thing was choosing the colour scheme as I went along. You may have noticed that I have a mount offered up to the painting. This is a useful tip to help me identify the final shape of the painting around the focal point and it also helped me pare back the colours.

Wednesday watercolour workshops on Zoom are back!

I am excited to have four beautiful new designs ready for a series of winter watercolour workshops on Zoom.
Based around Catherine’s own images, the workshops will take place on the middle Wednesday of each month.
Each workshop includes step-by-step demos and Q & A with Catherine, plus source photo, Zoom link and materials list supplied by email in advance.

Widcombe Art Trail is back!

This weekend 28-29 August I will be showing my work at The Widcombe Social Club (Lower Widcombe Hill, Bath BA2 6AA) as part of this popular local art trail.

I will be showing some recent original watercolours and will also have my new card designs with me.

I have been involved in the trail since my first WAT in 2013 (pictured here) when I was working from my own studio/gallery in the middle of Widcombe Parade!
