Pandora Gallery hosted a watercolour workshop by Mudgee artist, Jenny McNaughton on the weekend of 19-20 March, 2020.
Nine people attended each with varying degrees of experience, Jenny was very patient teaching everyone how to do simple but effective foliage, being aware of perspective, foreground, backgrounds and shadows. One of the exercises was to paint a whole picture with only two colours.
Each participant finished almost 3 paintings each – a great achievement! All reported back a fun and enlightening weekend.
