Sustained Saturday – Watercolour Plus

Still-life - FallSustSat-2012

Autumn is definitely in the air in this part of the world. There’s not much colour in the trees yet but the cool, bright days are very pleasant. The first Sustained Saturday class of the fall term took place in my studio yesterday. Many of the Saturday students are regulars and it was nice to see everyone again.

Almost all of the participants worked in watercolour. One artist drew with pen and ink; hence the word ‘Plus’ in the title of this post.

My demonstration sheet may be deceiving as each of the gourds was painted with a different approach and none of the steps are shown. I’ll try to show some steps in a post later this week.

Everyone felt that the day flew by. I hope that’s a good thing. Either way, I was very impressed with their work. Our next Sustained Saturday will take place on the 20th of October.

    I love the work from all your students. These are such controlled and beautiful pieces that I can’t believe that they have been done by amateurs!

    Love the Display of Pumpkins and Gourds. Could I have permission
    to use it, going to a painting class, this weekend, and we are to
    paint pumpkins…
    We shall see!!!
    Your Students, do so well. Be proud Barry, for being such a good
    As always, wish I lived close by.

    So much diversity. Once again I am amazed by the talent they show. How long have some of them been taking your class?
