This week we are looking at adding text and type to your sketches, which helps personalise and record the story of where you are. New students were trying out watercolour with sketching. A great exercise is to lay out one swatch of each of our 12 custom colours, across your page, and carefully drop a little of all the other colours over each and see the magic happen
This week we have a very wide range of subjects and styles, which makes for exciting sketches. Come with us on the journey we take as we explore what watercolour will do, or playing with water brush and aquarelles. It makes you happy and that’s the most important part.
We have some beautiful sketches this week showing ‘Turneresque’ style weather and cloud patterns and colour. Colour is big for us. We teach how to use one pure colour over another, leaving white tops and sides, to achieve the brightness we’re known for here at Erin hill Sketching. No grey or black paint. We can make that from our palette. Read on.

Summer is the time when the social swing hits the heights in the little French villages. Once you’ve been coming for a few years you are invited to all sorts of dinners, aperos, and summer parties. Even 10.00AM coffee and Rose at the markets every week. You are never alone. Unless you choose to be. Walk out your door and you’ll be invited to something.
Every Tuesday from early till midday the Olonzac markets take over several streets. About 15mins drive from our village. These are considered some of the best around, although every village has a market once a week. Very small villages have vans that arrive in the mornings, play very loud old time music over a speaker to alert you to them being there. You could be in a broom cupboard and you’d hear them.
