Poinsettia class

Every year I teach a watercolor class on poinsettias. We usually go to Quality Gardens on rt 228 because the green house is so beautiful and they have a wonderful selection. This year we decided to shop for our poinsettias there and paint in the studio. It was nice, but not the same as being in a humid greenhouse, surrounded by greenery... I may have to go just for myself. This is my demonstration on quarter sheet watercolor paper.

Portrait Session

I only had just over an hour of work time on this today.
Kind of had to "go with my gut" and just work on instinct.
I have to say it was fun. 
16x20 on a new pastel surface that I made using 
mat board, gesso and ground.
Not as much tooth as I would like 
but I will make more since the price is right.
