I love the farmers' market across the street from our shop ... Tuesday and Thursday and Saturday.
I go there atleast 2 out of the three days. We eat local whenever we can ... fresh corn on the cob is our summer favorite. Today I walked over and selected two green peppers and two small cucumbers, to be eaten by me tomorrow for lunch. But first, my farmers' market gems were the subject matter for my watercolor class.
We drew them, looking at the shapes of the pepper itself, and the shapes of the highlights and the shadows. We then applied layers of transparent watercolor and worked to create a small painting.
Everyone left with a watercolor they were pleased with .... plus I have fresh goodies for lunch!
