Clematis Montana Step by Step demonstration

34


I've enjoyed sharing with you this step by step demo of Clematis Montana growing outside the studio. You'll be able to buy a fuller version as a hard copy later when I have produced it in time for the Patchings Art Festival in June (10 - 13 June ). The clematis isn't in flower yet, because the cold weather has made everything about a month late this year but soon it will be everywhere, adorning fences, hedges and trellises like layers of pale pink lace.
The demo includes aspects such as laying a loose initial wash to set the scene and painting in the negative to bring out the flowers and leaves in successive layers of depth.
