"Silver" this weeks class lesson and last weeks actually, it took all of two weeks for the girls to complete, we worked from a photo which I don't like to do in a class much but the subject seemed easier to draw that way, we had the actual still life set up as well. Also, when I took the picture I took it outside where the blue of the sky reflected in the silver making for more interest. I have to say this painting was by far the winning painting this year, every one enjoyed it and had great success.
I'm still working on this one, it is quite the bear, had trouble with the hot pressed paper I'm using and I don't understand why, just a bad piece I guess, anyway, the photo was taken while antiquing at the Brimfield fair which was lots of fun poking around, I will post again when I'm finished.
I am a New England watercolor artist. I began painting in 1997 and enjoy painting everyday.I work on both Arches cold and hot pressed paper and yupo paper. I enjoy showing my work in local galleries and juried shows. When I am not painting I'm either gardening or painting old furniture.
I hope you enjoy my work and I welcome your comments.
