Riverside Art Center Artists Paint Flowers

Back row: Dave McNeal, Terry Nelson, Janice Belgiovane, Patricia Crawford; Front row: Bridget Weller, Misty Steinke, Mary Alice Brewer.
My wonderful intermediate watercolor students painted flowers last night and did an awesome job on their paintings.  They didn't get them finished and will finish on their own.  I thought they were far enough along to take a photograph.  It always amazes me that they can start with the same basic drawing and come up with such individualized results - their styles and personalities take over and make them unique to each individual. 

This particular lesson was one where we studied the effects of strong sun light and shadows on a flower.  They quickly caught on to the techniques and did a great job.
