More of my Watercolor Class Exhibit

Hi Everyone, I am back today with more photos of the students' work at the watercolor exhibit on Saturday and Sunday. Be sure to click on any photo to see a closer view. 

I was so proud of all of them. As you can see, they were amazing and all of them had never done watercolors and only a few had painted any at all.  By the way, in the above photo, you can see the delicious  cookies they all brought for our guests to munch!

They enjoyed doing paintings in the round and made some wonderful paintings.
There were a variety of sizes of works, some tiny and others quite large.

They wanted to do people...we opted for "character" type portraits and they painted from photographs, learning how to do flesh tones, shadows, and basic proportions, etc. It turned out to be one of their favorite lessons!


They really enjoyed floral painting, too.  

Each artist made 5 bookmarks, hand painted with little flowers or trees, etc. to give to our guests. They were really pretty and a big hit with all!

It was a fun day and I still have more photos. I'll wrap it up tomorrow. Hope you have enjoyed our show so far.
