We were promised an interesting evening and we weren’t disappointed. Sharon gave us an extremely informative and enjoyable demonstration of a young woman in watercolour. Sharon has a great sense of humour and kept us entertained with her unique way of explaining how she builds up paintings.
I won’t go into detail of her demonstration except to say that she used 140lb Bockingford Paper (Sharon’s favourite paper), together with Winsor Newton and Shin Han Watercolours. However, for those amongst you who would like to try her method, full details of her colours together with tutorials may be found on her website: http://www.sharonhurst.co.uk/. Go to the bottom of her Home Page and click on the link to Tutorials and Videos. Sharon also has a Facebook page which is ‘Sharon Hurst Art’
From all of us Sharon, thank you for an excellent evening, one we won’t forget for a long time.
