Watercolor Beyond the Obvious Class
After several years of wishing and hoping I could take Mike Bailey's Watercolor Beyond the Obvious Class, my time has finally come! So far so good! Each week we are required to paint two full-sheet paintings (that's 22" x 30" in case you are wondering!) of a still life that we selected at the beginning of class. Once we have established our still life set up we are not allowed to modify it in any way. By the end of the 10-week course we will have painted our particular still life arrangment TWENTY times! Yeah, you read that correctly, twenty times! We are allowed to take artistic license so that gives us a wide range of possibilities. Here my first several attempts.
