Riverside Art Center Watercolor Class
On September 21st we began the fall session of watercolor painting at the arts center in Wapakoneta, Ohio. We have 6 students (and 1 part time). They range in age from 13 to 71 (the teacher,) and are a wonderful, fun group of people. This project was of a vintage truck in a wet-in-wet background using a lot of negative painting in the background. As you can see, they are doing very well. The other two pictures show the students with their beach scene (from a Susie Short tutorial on the internet) and an abstract tree scene which incorporates calligraphic line accents and the wash techniques of Gary Lipscomb. Zoey, our youngest student has done very well - she didn't have two of her paintings with her, but I thought it would be nice to have her in all 3 pictures. Great Work, painters!
