Sandra Phillips' November workshop celebrated the approaching winter with a look at how to paint snow scenes. Working in oils, Sandra painted a beautiful landscape looking up towards the Preseli Hills - with great tips on mixing snow colours and snow-laden clouds as well as getting depth and space into the canvas. Members then painted their own scenes - either using Sandra's as a reference or developing paintings from their own reference material whilst Sandra came round offering helpful advice. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day and gained useful inspiration. Some lovely paintings resulted - with some group members planning to print them as Christmas cards.
