We did a lesson in negative painting techniques Monday night during my intermediate watercolor painting class at Riverside Art Center in Wapakoneta, Ohio. My painters did a wonderful job, as you can see, and we all had a great time, too. We also celebrated my 75th birthday in great style - 3 birthday cakes!!! Thank you so much for being such a great group!

This is another painting for the show with Pamela Baker. (see previous post) This is a painting from the photo of Dwight's Shed. Dwight is a friend of ours who also happens to love his shed. I was taken with the late afternoon sunlight reflecting on the trees and tried to capture that. The painting is 11" x 14" and is painted on 140 lb. Arches cold-pressed watercolor paper. I apologize for the light reflections on this photo - I usually photograph my paintings before I frame, but forgot in this case.
This may be the last painting for the show - I'm running out of time!!!

I was pleasantly surprised to take a First Place award at the Riverside Art Center's show this last Friday night. The competition was very stiff and so I am honored as well as surprised.
This is the painting that took the honors - "October Song" - a poured watercolor finished with negative painting techniques which I finished late last year. I posted this last November after painting this for a pouring demonstration. The painting is approximately 16" x 20" and is painted on 140 lb. cold-pressed watercolor paper.
Needless to say - I was blown away and very happy!!!
