Still Life with Hydrangeas

I painted this tonight in preparation for my classes which begin on Monday the 11th.  This will be the first project for the spring session of the watercolor class I teach at Riverside Art Center.  This painting is 11" x 8" and is on 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper.

Have enjoyed you working with the horizon line which makes such a difference to a composition. Liked the succulent very much and these hydrangeas make me feel I can't wait for my bushes to bloom in the summer.

Lovely, as usual, Barb.

I sure wish I lived close to the Riverside Art Center.
