Duncan Park and Pauline Trim
Monday December 4th
10am – 1pm
Duncan is primarily a watercolour artist living on Portland. I enjoy the freshness and spontaneity of the watercolour medium and prefer to paint outside continuing the long English tradition of Plein air painting.
There will be an opportunity for visitors to join me, “have a go” , as I demonstrate the processes involved in creating a simple watercolour painting.
