Absolutely brilliant session set amongst the beauty of Roundhay Park and under a blue sky! Lynn was a most informative tutor and relaxed communicator. She came equipped with everything we could have needed - plus a flask of welcomed coffee! After we'd finished - I felt as if I'd been away for a fortnight! Time had been transformed and lengthened effortlessly by our concentration and absorption. Thank you so much for a wonderful session!

I registered for Nature's Brushstrokes: En Plein Air Watercolour Meetup last Saturday at Kirkstall Abbey - what a beautiful place to be at! The painting session was very warm, welcoming and informative. It was a chilly morning, but we made the most out of it! We got beautiful pieces of painting at the end of the session. All materials required were kindly provided by the instructor (Lynn Armstrong), i.e. , watercolours, watercolours brushes, sketching pens; Lynn also prepared the paper sticked on cardboard beforehand so they're ready for us to use, and she even brought some warm coffee! Thanks to Lynn's instruction with water techniques and colour theories related to this specific lesson, I get better understanding on such topic. Although we were a bit rushing at the end due to the limited time allowance, we all completed and had our own piece of art, that are all brilliantly colourful with watercolour and sketching pens, to bring home afterwards! People walking pass were also interested! I am happy that it is my absolute first time of doing group painting session, painting outdoor, or even seeing in Kirkstall Abbey, it turned out to be wonderful and I love how supportive everyone is that makes me feel more confident of my result and to keep going with this interest/hobby of mine! All in all, it was such a lovely way to spend a Saturday morning! A wholesome meet up with informative instruction and wonderful scenery! Sending my warm gratitude to the team who made this happen, and my special thank to Lynn for her kindness and guidance!

We had a great time, we very much enjoyed our session with Lynn. She was friendly and approachable, with lots of tips and hints we found useful. My score of 4 is only because the time flew by and we would have liked longer!

I wanted to show the spiked foliage of this yellow cactus. I masked the first layer then used negatives painting to create layers of spikes. I used blue-green watercolours to match the original plant's spikes.
