Wet and Wild
This past Sunday I demonstrated Painting the Expressive Qualities of Watercolor at Opus Art Supplies in Victoria, BC. In this demonstration I used squirt bottles filled with paint and spray bottles filled with water to create crashing waves. Wet and Wild is one of the paintings I exhibited and In Motion is the other.
I demonstrated several paintings during the day and the demo was filled to capacity. There were some wonderful questions asked and I really enjoyed showing how wonderful and fun watercolor can be.
I did more paintings than what is shown here but haven’t had a chance to photograph them yet.
Along with my demonstrations and workshops, I am teaching university courses in painting. I absolutely love teaching painting to some very keen university students but find grading 65 projects a bit daunting. It is difficult to give art a number and a grade. So I have spent most of my week critiquing, grading, and conversing with those 65 students about their masterpieces.
