Waterlily and Shadows
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends. We were blessed to have the whole family here, in addition to my brother Tim and wife Peg from Cleveland for the weekend. We had a great weekend, but no time to post on my blogs.
This is a painting I recently completed for the class I was teaching at the Riverside Arts Center in Wapakoneta, Ohio. It is 1/4 sheet of Arches 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper with an assortment of different brands of watercolors. This was NOT a popular project for the class - it caused a lot of anxiety and frustration - for that I apologize to my students. That is the last thing I wanted to accomplish. I guess, to me, it looked a lot easier than it was. I agree that it wasn't as easy as it first appeared. The source of this painting was a Wet Canvas photo.
