Chas Jacobs workshop

Hello there! How are you? Hope you are well and that your weekend was good! Mine was fabulous - I went to a workshop with the artist Chas Jacobs on Saturday and on Sunday I did a run and then had lunch and went to see Peter Rabbit - I wasn't expecting to like it but it was great!

Back to my workshop - it was really relaxed - just four of us plus Chas and his wife in their home - they live in my village so I could walk there.

This is my watercolour version of the complete scene - you can see the greeting card that I was using for my inspiration too!

Here's the acrylic version completed on Sunday morning!

A really lovely workshop - so peaceful and a great way to spend the day!
