Snow Scenes....

The theme of our next class of "Watercolor with Jean" was painting snow scenes. I did a painting at home from a photo I took in my back yard and made a watercolor of it.

I started the class with a demo of a new snow scene in class and did the painting in steps, so as to help the students learn various techniques of mixing color and practicing the use of light and shadow.

This is that demo.

The class seemed to have trouble following and I spent a lot of time with individual instruction. I asked them to work on them at home and bring them to the next and last class. Because of scheduling of the classroom, we skipped a week, so they two weeks to work on it.

Last class of Watercolor with Jean fall series....

I had six students in this fall series, and on the last class only two were able to attend it. Was it the homework I gave them?

It was good thought because it was almost like the students were having private lessons. I was able to help with projects they wanted to work on. One student worked on watercoloring a drawing of a girl in costume, she had done. I showed her how to to work the folds on the gown and how to color the face to give them dimension.

The other student wanted to redo a painting of a vase of flowers and I started a demo of some flowers which I later finished at home. It was a fun class and it went rather quickly. This is the finished painting I started in class.

My next series of "Watercolor with Jean will be in the spring.
