Value Portrait in Watercolor

This is a demonstration that I did for my watercolor students when we were working on portraits. I wanted them to see the shapes using values and then think of color later. It is a nice quick exercise to do before any portrait... or painting for that matter.

Acrylic Poinsettia Painting

I had my students try acrylic instead of watercolor for our poinsettia class.
It was fun to try something new, twist our minds a little with a different way of painting.
This was my demonstration... 8x10 canvas board.
