Inspired by Ali Lindley

Ali Lindley is a creative artist specialising in watercolour and mixed media work and I was lucky enough to recently attend one of her workshops. She has her own unique style, which is quite loose, using colour and texture as the stimulus for a piece of work which is often finished with the addition of gold leaf.

Having no real experience in watercolour painting it proved to be a most exciting if somewhat nerve wracking day. We used a number of techniques such as stenciling, washes, dropping colour in and water spraying gold ink as well as simply letting the paint do its own thing;  Ali made it look so simple but that’s years of experience for you.  However under her guidance I managed to produce something almost recognisable!

    Surely not a first attempt…they are lovely. Where are you based Wendy, are you in Winchester?

      Thank you for those kind words but believe me they look better photographed than in reality!
      It was my first attempt, I’m no painter but I love the way Ali paints, I’m going to give it another go.
      I’m based in Southampton.
