On Thursday morning I went with my therapy dog Ollie for our weekly visit to Jack Inglis, a local hospital and resthome for the elderly.
Every week Ollie,my dog and I visit this rest home and we do the rounds and Ollie gives a lot of joy and cuddles to the residents.
This week was a bit different because for the first time I did an hour workshop water colour painting with some of the hospital residents.
I made this water colour sketch as an sample for my small group of elderly painters.
Ollie of course had to give everyone a cuddle before we started and then he settled next to the chairs and kept an eye on what was going on.First we used water colour paints to create the back ground and then the ladies used a black marker pen to outline and draw in the trees.
The big brushes and marker pens are easy to hold for unsteady hands.
We finished just before lunch time and Ollie and I were happy with the results!
