I will suggest a watercolour landscape to include sky, distant trees/mountains, simple building(s), people and maybe a foreground stream using wet in wet and wet in dry techniques.

I will produce a painting and print out copies for members to use as a guide. I like to work in stages giving tips and advise on the various stages as we go.  I prefer that members have as much time as possible to paint during the session. I will supply the paper and paint.
