adult watercolor classes by handmadelove - tick!

remember how i was bummed that we didn't have enough time in melbourne to attend adult art classes? well, here's some news! good things do happen! so the husband was organizing our evening plans. then he sent an email that started with "sounds like you have a painting partner!" the girls would go painting while the boys drank beers in town. then we'd all meet & have a yummy late dinner!! 


we pulled up at their brunswick workshop and was welcomed by these happy things.
a MASSIVE bag of marshmallows and pretty prints!

welcome to harvest workroom!

bunting bunting bunting!

my work in progress.

our inspiration of the night - boxes.

i loved swirling the colors.

thanks, molly, the best arty buddy ever!

my awesome teacher, dawn from handmadelove. (see her works here!)

the lesson was loadsa fun and well taught. all we did was turn up, chatted up a storm and everything else was taken care of. dawn, who totally made our day by telling us we looked like we were in our early twenties, was a darling and kept telling us to make mistakes which was great cos that i can do!

im sure one lesson didn't make a huge difference to my lack of painting skills. but it was a whole lot of fun and inspiration. and heaps of ideas to work into other crafts! who knows? maybe one day i might carry my palette and brush around town and paint things i see in the street! 
now that might be fun! :)


  1. I lurveeeee watercolour painting! I love the merging of the colours as they trickle into one another and that the colours are so light, so dreamlike! I'd always been an oil on canvas fan until recently. I think your work is awesome for a first timer. Well done babe!!
