DISCUSSION

ON TOPICS TALK


Commencing January 1st 2017

there will be a new Landscape Tutorial started

using Watercolour Pencils to produce a picture of Venice


This will occupy the 25 or so members of Topics Talk Group on Facebook

( off and on ) for a month or so.


Some members of the Group will be working along

Some just observing and commenting

but it should be of interest to all the Group members.


Among the Group we have some very experienced artists and some relative beginners


Through the Facebook facility we can have work in progress images posted up by members of the Group and we can also answer questions, make some suggestions,

and make some joint decisions about what to do next.


At intervals, an edited version of our progress will be shown

on the Step by Step tutorial page so that when we finish,

the total experience will be recorded and shown on the site here.


To get maximum benefit from this exercise

I suggest that you will need to be a member of the Group
