Composition tutorial blog

Next week we will be touching upon how to compose a painting. I have stumbled upon this great blog by Dianne Mize that would be great reference for the future. Don't be fooled by the bohemian chatter this lady has created some wonderful work and knows what she's talking about; she also features some great watercolour artists from many different style genres. Hope there's somthing you like!

Edward Lear

Yesterday I went to the British Museum and spotted these watercolour paintings by Edward Lear.

Student's work

The group painted their first still life images onto stretched paper and here are the wonderful results! My photography skills really don't do this artwork justice, well done guys!
