Watercolor with Jean class...spring 2018

I still thought it was a great idea to bring my Anthurium plant to class and have my students enjoy painting it. This series, I had two intermediate students, who have taken my classes before, and three new beginner students. We worked a couple of weeks on our Anthurium plant and I was very pleased with everyone's results.

I haven't posted in a long time, but time moves fast, so I will try to catch up.

This is one of my paintings that is hung at our current show at MAL. With a combination of watercolor and alcohol inks, it's a full sheet and a large piece framed.

I was shopping in the supermarket when I spotted this Anthurium plant and I thought it would be a fun subject to bring to my up and coming watercolor classes that I teach.

I had started a background on a large piece of hand made paper a while ago and was never inspired to compete it. I just couldn't think of what to paint on it, until I found this plant. It just seemed to fit and I was eager to start.

More experimenting...

This is another fun abstract painting done with alcohol ink on Yupo paper. Yupo paper has a plastic coating on it's surface that allows the ink to flow on the surface and is not absorbed into the paper. Much different than working on watercolor paper, and the colors are very concentrated and strong, since they don't mix with water.

Experimenting....

I have been experimenting with water-soluble glitter alcohol ink and enjoying the results. I was adjusting the pens when a large blob of brown fell on to my watercolor paper. I got a brush with water and started to play with it. Then added greens and blue. Then result turned out to be a happy accident!

Encouraged by this I started another one just combining my colors for a background. I saw the possibly of a flower there and and drew that in with my dark brown brush. Really kind of fun.

New neighbor...

The house across the road, sold late this summer. It is a nice house with land set up with fenced pastures. The new people have two beautiful horses and I was able to take a bunch of photos with the idea of doing some watercolors in the future. This horse was very photogenic and I decided to paint him.

New calendars for 2018...

I received my new calendars from Vistaprint that I had made up in two sizes. I was very pleased with how well they were printed. I have them on sale now at the Mispillion Art League and Gallery.

Last class of my "Watercolor with Jean" series...

This series went so fast. We had our last class this pass Monday.

I photographed a vase of flowers I picked from my garden. Bringing the photo to class I did a demo on how to paint it. My students started their paintings using the method I showed them. They only started paintings, so I didn't photograph them, but they promised to work on them during the break before our next series in the spring.

This is the finished demo I painted.
