Winter Tuesday Watercolour Class – February 23!


The teddy bears were back on Tuesday and eager to pose for the afternoon and evening classes. My demonstration for the Sustained Saturday class last weekend seemed to hit the mark so I presented the same basic thoughts on Tuesday. I used ‘soft-edge’ techniques within the component shapes of the bears (and monkey). In each shape, I started with a light wash before touching in a darker value while still wet.

The Tuesday students enjoyed painting our furry friends. Many would have liked a bit more time to work on their watercolours. I’m impressed with some of the colourful and effective backgrounds conceived by some of them.

My winter classes are over at the Arts on Adrian studio in Toronto. I’ll be back in April. Next week, I’m off to San Migeul de Allende, Mexico with a lucky group of watercolour painters. Stay tuned for our creative adventures in the sunshine.
