We have continued to try new ideas in color and I did a painting at home (I always try these ideas at home because I want to make sure my ideas will help me teach what I want to convey to the students).
Then I did one in class as a demo. One of the students brought in Dr. Martin's watercolor paints which are liquid, instead of a tube. I had never used them before, although I have used his colored inks. I decided to use his paints to see how we liked them. They are very easy to work with and because they are very concentrated, the color just jumps off the page. I liked them so much that I think I will order them for myself.
Everyone did their own renditions of a sun-fulled paintings and I will take pictures of them next week when we meet again.
