Watercolour Red Pepper

Good Morning,

Happy Monday, 1st of November. Now the clocks have gone back, and it's darker in the evening, let's look on the bright side... lots of cosy nights to paint, draw and do all things creative.

This week's blog is step by step on how to paint a red pepper in watercolours.

It's suitable for all abilities. If you have kids or grandkids this is a great activity that they will enjoy.
