This is the latest project painting that I have prepared for my watercolor class at Riverside Art Center in Wapakoneta, Ohio. The subject is a lemonade pitcher which my husband and I bought several years ago in West Virginia along with 6 hand thrown clay cups. I added 2 Bosc pears to the still life before photographing. The painting is approx 9" x 12" and is transparent watercolor with black acrylic background. It is painted on 140 lb. Fabriano Artistico cold-pressed watercolor paper.

Tonight, my watercolor class worked on a still life from a Google image. It was an exercise in layering watercolor washes and they have a really strong start - we will finish next week

This is a recent painting I have prepared for my class at Riverside Art Center in Wapakoneta, Ohio.
I cut and pasted several images to achieve this composition. The painting is 8 1/2 x 11 inches and is painted on Fabriano Artistico cold-pressed 140 lb.watercolor paper. I used a lot of burnt sienna, dragon's blood and sepia watercolors.
