Our group of Thursday painters have been having some structured classes taught by one of us for several weeks. Last week and the previous Thursday Michelle Walker worked with us on palette knife painting in oils. We painted a single apple both weeks. A picture of the first week's apples is currently on this blog. This Thursday, I took them through the process of pouring a painting and negative painting techniques. This painting is approximately 9" x 12" and is painted on 140 lb. Canson Tientes cold-pressed watercolor paper. We had a good time and the results were very good. They will be posted at a later date. This painting is from a photo by a Watercolor Workshop friend, Vicki Greene, who very graciously allows us to use her photos. Thanks, Vicki! :)
The group of Thursday painters now has a name - we call ourselves "Muses Mix Media" and we will have a blog as soon as I get the time to set it up.
