Watercolor Class with Demo

Last Wednesday, Richard Stephens gave me the opportunity to teach one session of his annual Garland County Library watercolor beginners class, as he was unavailable that day. I decided to do a 1-hour demo (although it's difficult for me to paint that fast, and also to paint vertically) and then to have the students try their hand at the same painting. I did the accompanying painting Early Snow in the class. The students had plenty of questions, and seemed to enjoy the demo and the painting exercise. I enjoyed it, too.

The Springs Magazine is a monthly guide to arts, entertainment, and activities in Hot Springs, Arkansas. My painting Fall Firetrees was chosen for the cover of the November, 2009 issue. Thanks to publisher/editor Sonja Lash for choosing my painting and to Richard Stephens Commercial Art for the cover design.
