Watercolour and acrylic classes are into their 3rd week. Watercolour 1 are beginning to paint a rose- using a grid to draw out their image, and practicing hard and soft edges. Watercolour Explorations began working on large florals in the style of American watercolorist Birgit O'Connor: working on heavy 300lb. paper, which is not taped or stapled down, using large brushes and lots of water to move the paint around... Here are some pics of our work -- none are completed yet.
The beginning acrylic class is looking at creating form with value and colour. Here are some practice pieces of shapes and clouds.
