Autumn embraces the rich shades of fruits and berries. Rich red rosehips stand out brightly against the complementary green foliage.
In this demonstration Julie will show how to capture the shine on the smooth surface of the berries and suggest the backdrop of foliage.
Walking along the roadside in Norfolk this wonderful carpet of lavender with pale pink thistles in the foreground provided inspiration for a painting with a horizontal feel.
Using both wet on wet and wet on dry techniques Julie will demonstrate her approach to this scene.

When these plants open fully they reveal a beautiful blue-violet centre which harmonise with the stunning shades in the outer segments.
Julie will show you how to capture their brilliance in watercolour.
