I did a watercolor workshop for the girlscouts Monday evening. There were 9 of them, 5th graders, and they were all working on their watercolor badges. We did some wet-in-wet backgrounds using the 3 primary colors. This painting was one of my mixtures with salt texture and I decided to make a flower out of it. The girls were amazed at the mixtures you could get by tipping their boards one way and the other.

What a lucky bunch of girl scouts. Wish I'd had that back when I was in scouting ---50 years ago! You sound like such a wonderful teacher and leader.

Sandy,
What I wish is that I could take some classes with you - your yupo, and watercolor batik techniques are awesome.
