I Have a Plan!


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.

That's a great plan. :) And you can post the results from each of your 'class sessions' here, as though we are your classmates! The postcard painting is really pretty, I'm glad you're getting good instruction in your independent study work!

Hi, Katherine! I just completed the second session and now I'm going to try to get the photos off of the camera. My computer guy (Computer Genius) is taking a nap, so we'll see how I do on my own:)

Thank you, Marty! I'm so glad you stopped by.
