One of the subjects I used for my watercolor classes this last series was the Bird of Paradise. I wanted to teach how to mix color on the paper as well as on the palette. This is always fun because of the surprises that happen with watercolor.

This is a demo I worked on in class to teach this idea.

Since I love painting this way, I went home and did a large painting with Stargazer Lilies. I love mixing colors right on the paper and letting the paint, water and paper do all the work for me.

We had a good watercolor class yesterday, which ended this series. Some finished off the projects from last week and other started new ones to work on during the summer. The students have worked out a plan to practice watercolor this summer by getting together to paint.

Four students have already signed up for a series next October and others are considering it. Since we only need four to have classes, we are confirmed for next fall. Nice to have that taken care of.

I put together a collage of my group and and I feel very good about what we learned and what we accomplished.
