Ways with watercolour

Philippa Sinclair demonstrated her free-flowing techniques of watercolour painting to members on Friday, March 15, at Gracefield, Dumfries. Philippa showed how different effects can be produced using a range of brushes on different weights of paper. And she emphasised the need to keep water clean to avoid muddy colours.
