Winter Tuesday Watercolour Classes – January 12


This is the other side of our still life from the Sustained Saturday class last weekend. It’s a tricky subject and I did my best to simplify the various elements of the challenge. As on Saturday, I discussed the drawing of ellipses and also offered suggestions about how to handle the crate and it’s relationship to the cups and mugs.

I thought I might experience a mutiny when the Tuesday students saw the still life. There were a few nervous remarks as they entered the studio. As usual, however, they accepted the task and worked hard. It was a good learning experience and the classes ended on a very positive note.
