Hi everyone,

Ill start out by welcoming our new community members. Its lovely to have you here to share our combined loves and learning in such a lovely space. Ive really been enjoying your work and progress and hope to see more of you connecting with each other in time here too. Dont forget, we also have the members chat here to enjoy and converse too.

So can you believe another month is upon us already? Goodness, April already? Well, on the upside, this means its time to unveil the months next painting challenge which goes live on the 8th. Im being asked a lot for botanicals lately, and as this space is all about NATURE painting challenges, i wanted to diversify this month with a return to botanical.

Our challenge this month is such a good one and Im really excited about it myself because it deep dives into some fab stuff that will help you along even more. Our subject is the PERSIMMON, allowing us to work with colour, intensity, washes, glazes and for some added fun, we explore a really simple way to create and capture some tricky but wonderful water drops on our fruit subject. We love that I know, but it often goes so badly…. ๐Ÿ˜– Well not any more Im sure. This challenge is all about fun, colour, technique and play and I cant wait to jump in with you!

Take a look at the little intro clip to see more on what will be covered and Ill see you there in the wash, very soon!
