BEGINNER / REFRESHER COURSE – 8 WEEKS with MARIA FIELD 2021 Inge Scott enjoys exploring the effects of mixing varieties of colours, so she created her own colour chart as a useful reference. (Above) A range of interesting warms and cools. Chris Osborn (WSQ historian) has been wanting to paint this Pavilion on the Li River, China, for a while now. Chris said he doesn’t paint much, but we’re glad he found time for this one.
