Neil Broadfoot Workshop - Burleigh Falls

Today was spent at KAGS on the final day of a three day workshop with Neil Broadfoot.

We had two weeks to develop our final drawing using sketches made on location at Burleigh Falls and from any photographic reference we had from the pictures taken at that time.

We were shown how to transfer them to our watercolour paper so the pencil lines wouldn't be visible.

Neil demonstrated various ways of painting the granite rocks found at Burleigh and capturing the movement of rushing water as it flows over and around the rocks.

This is the painting that I worked on in class and will show once it is completed. I have another three drawings transferred down onto watercolour paper which I will paint at a later date.
