I really need to get back in the swing of watercolor and the best way to do that is to take a class. The problem is that I don't have time to take a class right now. Sooooo...what's the next best thing? I'm going to use my watercolor books and start my own personal, private class in my studio (which I like to call my art room - it makes me feel like a kid). Yesterday and today were my first days in class. It's not quite as much fun as being in class with a bunch of other students, but it's still fun. This lesson was from Watercolor in Motion by Birgit O'Connor. I painted a half sheet on Arches 140 lb. cold pressed paper. Next weekend, I'll paint flowers, maybe with Birgit or maybe with Philip Jamison:) I wrote to Philip Jamison years ago to see if he was teaching workshops. He wasn't, but he sent me a lovely postcard with one of his paintings on it when he replied. I love his work.
