Yamaji Artists visit

On Monday 21 of June I had the privilege to have 3 Yamaji Artist from WA visiting the studio for a professional development workshop. Artists Kevin Merritt, Barbara Merritt and Margaret Whitehurst wanted to learn to work with watercolour in addition to their current medium. The focus was on Botanic Art.

A great day painting with watercolour and some love stories from the three artist. Some real insight in the local wild flowers as well.
