I went to Lamesa and painted with JoBeth and a fun group of artists Tuesday. It was a real fun play day. Teacher JoBeth did a demo then everyone painted what ever they wanted . I took a pot of flowers so I painted my still life Poppy bouquet in two different ways. The first one is on 1/4 sheet of Arches watercolor paper . I wet the paper front & back then put a light watercolor wash on the wet paper. After this was dry I did some negative painting & brought out the color & shapes of the poppies. With the second painting showing more flowers I worked on a 1/2 sheet of Arches watercolor paper. This one I put the water color down pretty much as I went along on dry paper softening edges with water. After it was dry I added more details & some washes over areas that needed it. Always enjoy going over and just running away from all the distractions for a whole day. Yes !
Snyder artfest will start April 25, Friday night 6 to 9 and 10 to 4 Saturday, April 26. I hope to see you there, if you are close by come on down to see us.
