Our third class of our six week spring series of Watercolor with Jean was learning how to create textures and backgrounds to our paintings first and then incorporating a subject or subjects after the background dries. It's a lot of fun to mix our paints and textures for an almost abstract painting. Then look for pictures in the textures and making them come to life. We found flowers, butterflies, and shells.

I painted one at home and it evolved into another shell painting. I used this painting as an example of what you could create using this method.

I did a demo in class to showed how to create our background and later added what I could visualize in the textures and colors. I showed them how to see and paint the flowers I saw there. I wasn't able to finish it in class, but they got the idea. I did finish it at home and will bring it to class next week.

They did have fun watercolor painting this way and here they are with their paintings.

Mid March I start a new series of watercolor classes. I've put off thinking about it because I have a lot of time to plan it, right? Well February is racing by and I still haven't got a clue as to what to teach. Plus I have a full class of eight students, most of who have been in my classes before. I needed something new.

The other day I was on Facebook and there were a lot of pictures of sea shells....I have baskets full of shells and pebbles from my walks at Slaughter Beach. I set up a little still life and this is what I painted.

I know this will be a fun project for my first class.

Did another painting later on, but did it in a different style.
