An afternoon of Pen and Wash.

We spent a delightful afternoon with Alan Colledge, a fine watercolour artist from Kent in England.

We occasionally visit his studio for some tuition on techniques and ideas and it is alway fun and rewarding.

This time was no exception and his information on Pen and Wash was excellent and so with his guidance we produced some watercolours.

Here is the main one that we all did after watching his demonstration. It is of Scotney Castle in Kent. This is a lovely National Trust castle and grounds and in the spring the Azaleas and Rhododendrons are splendid.

You can find Alan Colledge at Art fairs and Craft and Farmers markets across the South of England where he sells his watercolours and greetings cards. This weekend he will be at the Midsummer Fair in Lenham in Kent. It is held at The Tithe Barn, Lenham, Kent ME17 2QD

This was  a very nice day and quite different from my usual watercolours so thanks to Alan for showing us his approach to this interesting technique.

Happy travelling
