WORKSHOP - Portraiture at Scarborough Art Gallery

A lovely portraiture workshop yesterday at Scarborough Art Gallery, this was a day of School workshops with 80 year 5 pupils. We concentrated on a technique I use in my own paintings, ink and watercolours with an extra special spray with a water squirter... the spraying was highly popular needless to say!
