Sustained Saturday – Watercolour Plus!

I varied the still-life from Tuesday, adding some new objects and making it less symmetrical. My demonstration/discussion was mostly review with a few thoughts about colour. I used primaries in my demos.

I haven’t featured a pen and ink drawing in a while. One of our participants is very fond of the pen and created the piece seen below.

Pomegranates by T. Leacock

It was a good day. In the morning, many of the participants worked on studies and thumbnail sketches until about noon. Most of us marched off to the local Portugese bakery for fresh sandwiches and got right back to work after lunch. We wrapped up at four and had a thirty minute critique (see below).

That’s it! I’m off to Korea in a few hours. I’ve never been on such a long flight or visited that part of the world. If the gods of electricity approve, I’ll post a few times from there.

Critique - Saturday, November 6

    Interesting set up. It is a challenge when so many pieces are so close to the same color and value. (The ink sketch is very well done.) Have fun, learn alot, experience alot in Korea. What a great opportunity!

    Thanks, Linda. I’m writing this from my hotel room in Korea. Arrived at 3 am this morning and attended the Opening Reception and Dinner this evening. Fellow artists from all over the world. Quite a wonderful experience and I hope to post in a day or two.
