Today's watercolor workshop was as successful as I had hoped.
My students learned more about watercolor ... layering, lifting and patience!
They know going home and working on their own 2nd painting is the best way to retain what they have just experienced. Throughout the day there was information, conversation and bonding but at times we all noticed the silence .... brought about by the intense concentration.
I have posted my students' work. Even though they will say they are not finished, you will see the variety of individual students' work. The lesson was based on the tulip tree blossom. I provided the students with some of my own photos and references from the internet. Each person drew their own composition (no two were alike). The lesson is based on layers of transparent watercolor, starting light and ending with a full range of values.
My painting is posted for sale in my Etsy shop!!! It could be yours!!!!!
