Presenting new paintings with discussions of issues related to watercolor media.
Tuesday, June 5, 2012
Just completed a month of voluntary teaching at the senior center and it flew by. It was gratifying to see progress made by the painters and also, get their wonderful feedback. We had a goal for each session, a demonstration by me, and then time for painting. Each class went fast and left little time for critique, which is so important. Critiques were not only from me but included a good exchange from the class. We had a partnership in the venture and no one should have felt picked on.
I had requests for painting lots of things but did this quick painting of birches in about 20min leaving time to go over work from the previous session. Birches are easy and gratifying to paint into scenes.
