Today, being the third Monday in the month, meant that it was time for Mindfulness in Art. Our group met in the upstairs gallery at Hatch cafe and the session was led by Fi R Backhouse. We watched as she demonstrated how to use salt to create effects, textures and patterns in watercolour painting. We practised this technique on a sample piece of paper before applying our new skills to our observational drawing. The subjects we chose varied between a group of glass bottles, a ceramic bowl, a hanging basket and a pot plant.
