Composition Study

A simple watercolor scene was painted to meet composition percentages. Two thirds mid-value and two thirds green values was the goal. The painting was done quickly in class but looking it over, I liked the simplicity with a well stated focal area. I think that there is surprise with rapid painting in watercolor. I switched media this week to guide a class in acrylic painting. This was done at the University for a group of 25 mostly non-painters. We mixed hues from only primary colors along with white and black. It amazed me what people came up with working from a simple sketch. It turned out to be a lot of fun and a big break from their three day retreat. No wine was served but this is the current trendy thing called "sip and dip" parties.
