Watercolour painting group on a Tuesday afternoon in the summer

From May to August, the Denman Island Arts Centre hosts the Summer Art Gallery and the Readers and Writers Festival.

That means that the Tuesday afternoon watercolour painting group meets in members' homes/gardens during the summer. Today was the first such occasion and we met in Linda Mather's beautiful garden.

Flowers from Linda's garden.

We all worked on a picture to give Carol as a going away present when she leaves to return home to Britain.

My painting today.
