Fourth Class of the Next Series of "Watercolor With Jean"
In our fourth watercolor class, I decided to work with demonstrating all the different techniques that you could use to create textures in their paintings. It's quite a bit of fun doing this and I put all the textures I could think of on one small sheet of paper. While it was drying, I had them do the same. They went at it with a strong sense of determination, and one the students said, "We should have some music because it's so quiet in here."
Just before class I had collected a bunch of leaves and I showed how to use them as a stamp and a way to trace them into our paintings. We then talked about what we saw in our textures and how we could develop them into a finished painting.
As they worked on there paintings I sat down and started to develop my painting, pausing to show them what I was doing every once in a while.
This is the demo painting I finished in class.
