New Series of Watercolor Classes

We started a new series of "Watercolor with Jean" classes today at the Mispillion Art League and Gallery. I have nine students, two former students and seven new ones. Although they may have had some experiences with art, they were ready to begin with the color wheel, mixing watercolor, and just getting started with the basics.
After doing the color wheel, which is mixing colors on their palettes, we got to the real fun of mixing the colors on wet watercolor paper. It's always an eye opener when you twist and turn the paper and make the paint blend where you want it to. This is what makes watercolor my favorite medium, just watching the water, paint, and paper work together to create wonderful combinations of blended color.



It was a fun afternoon and I am looking forward to our next class!
