9.30am - 12.30pm Exploring Watercolours/Water based media with Anne Conomy

I have been a member of Beaumaris Art Group since 2002 (although was also a member back when I was a teenager).  Although I have enjoyed acrylic and pastel painting, I have been exploring watercolour since 2002 and become passionate about the medium.  I am particularly drawn to big sky landscapes and portraiture in the medium although if I can encourage others to play and love the medium I am happy. I am looking forward to the opportunity to spend time further exploring water-based media with a group of keen artists in 2019.
