I've been busy this week going back to basics, painting small simple watercolors. These are practice for the demos I will be doing while teaching a beginner watercolor class at our local senior center. So far, my ideas for lessons consist of autumn leaves-(basic wash, glazing, mingling colors), a graded value landscape (glazing, painting evergreen trees), and autumn trees (basic tree shapes, mingling colors, scumbling, painting thin lines). I'm trying to keep it simple, teach a new concept each week, and hopefully send the students home with a successful little painting.
I am a watercolor artist living in New Jersey. I am a member of the North East Watercolor Society, the New Jersey Watercolor Society, and several local and internet art organizations through which I exhibit my paintings. My favorite subjects are close focused florals and landscapes. I've recently begun teaching a beginning watercolor class at our local senior center.
