Monday's Class & Preparing for Watercolour Workshop

In both my Monday and Wednesday classes, artists work on their own projects and are encouraged to pursue their own styles. It's such a pleasure to witness what art comes from each of them. The artist below can make a watercolour look like an oil painting.

What a difference! From very detailed to loose. Wouldn't this image look great in a kids' book?

Drawing the human form from one reference picture against the background of another reference picture is never an easy task. I think she is close to getting it looking believable.

It's amazing how much room we need as watercolour painters! We have four people at a table that would sit 8 for dinner. Even though the artist below claims that she would rather be painting baskets of eggs, she is persisting and doing a great job.

On Saturday, 6 folks new to painting with watercolours will be seated around the same tables. They have signed up for my Beginners' Watercolour Workshop. I've changed the painting exercises to help them practise layered washes.....

....and gain some experience with wet-on-wet, wet-on-dry and mixing colours.

I am hoping there will be as much fun and laughter around the table on Saturday as we had today.

“Friendship is unnecessary,

like philosophy,

like art.... It has no survival value;

rather it is one of those things which give value to survival.”

C.S. Lewis
