This month workshop by Denise Jones was fun, informative and a great learning experience!

The poppies texture surprise; a fun day was definitely the most appropriate title.

Denise surprise as all with a variety of ideas on how to portrait poppies, using paint and all kind of textures and mediums. A true delightful workshop with all kind of challenges.

This Saturday we concentrated on designing the work with plenty of encouragement and guidance and then the fun began!

It was not possible to finish the work in one session, so Denise demonstrated and explained the various techniques and as always, she provided us with clear and concise instructions on how to proceed as well as the most beautiful photos of poppies you can imagine!

She took the photos herself from her sister’s garden in New Zealand she even has photos of bumble bees pollinating the poppies! So, she gave us plenty of home work till her next workshop when we’ll have the opportunity to finish the work. As seen in the photos every work was different

It was fun, it was challenging and I thoroughly enjoyed it and by the look of everybody’s face we all did, even Sandra (our president) who does not ‘do’ flowers did some poppies!

I’m looking forward to the next one.
