Our spring series of "Watercolor with Jean" started out with the inspiration of tulips. I love their shapes and colors. I enjoyed painting my interpretation of them just before classes began.

My first class, I shared my my enthusiasm for these flowers and gave the class a demo on where to begin. This is the finished demo from class.

These are the the beginning and finished tulip paintings of my students.

Since most of my students in my water class elected to paint tulips, I got the urge to paint them myself when I got home. This time I decided to use a hot press paper and play with another technique that I felt went with the composition and feeling I wanted to accomplish.


I am quite happy with this one!

So we had our first class in a new series of "Watercolor with Jean". I have five students signed up, but only three came to the class. I did a demo and then worked with each student. As you can see by the photo, each person had her own style and painted some very pretty tulips.

Our last class went very well with some students finishing their apple paintings while others finishied work they started in class, but never finished. I was able to work with each student and did a small "how to" demo, painting white flowers.

I did work on an apple as well and I posted it here for future reference.

Now that classes are over till the fall, the Outdoor Show finished, and the Spring Show at the Gallery is hung, I finally have a little time for to myself to do some painting. When I was looking through paintings to select for the Spring Show, I found this tulip painting that I was never quite happy with. I unframed it and decided to work on it some more. I am now much happier with the way I revised it and plan to submit it to the Fall Show.
