Water ~ Water Everywhere
I taught a small class on Dauphin Island today that focused on watercolor. The class was at the Dauphin House, a lovely Bed & Breakfast on the Island. (Thanks Carol & George for opening up your dining room to us!) We had a great time, wishing the other students that wanted to join the class could have been there. The group promises to grow in number so we may have to move to a larger place for everyone to be able to spread out their paints on multiple tables. We all worked on this crab on the dock. My students never cease to amaze me, we can all start out with the same drawing, but end up with several very different paintings. Each person has their own style. Some are looser and others are more controlled and tight in their handling of the watercolor. That continued into the night class I taught for USA this evening, each student has their own style and sense of color! That is what makes art such a wonderful outlet~there really is no wrong way to create!
