5" x 7" watercolor
Been tied up here. My mom fell and is in the hospital with a broken hip and pneumonia. She needs to get a hip replacement. She is 88 years old. Been spending time at the hospital with her. Classes also began so they are keeping me busy, too.
In these first few weeks back we are doing little 5" x 7" paintings, just to get back into the swing of things...This was one of the quick demos that I did.
Today I was showing them how to make really dark backgrounds for florals and still lifes and how to paint a quick rose with just a few brush strokes. Next week one of my classes will be having a paint off. This should be interesting.
