I am pretty lucky that I have my classes to teach. I continually get to go over the basics (that we often forget) and I am able to do demos to show the techniques I am teaching. Today, I had a new student who was interested in watercolor. The rest of the class was interested in trying acrylic since they had been painting with watercolors since fall. So I chose a simple subject, strong light and some texture. My watercolor demos went well and I ended up with one strong colored and the other alittle muted. The acrylic demo was great fun and the students also did some nice work. It is always a good day when the students dive in and end up with work they are proud of.
So, here are my oranges, oranges, oranges, 1, 2 and 3.
