Last week I held my last watercolor class for my students. Our church hosts drawing and watercolor classes. My dear friend Bill Walls, a fine watercolorist himself, asked me to help by guiding our students who have finished the basic class and are moving on to what we call the “advanced” class. It’s not really advanced, it’s just more so than the basic class. Anyway, rambling on as I like to do, my class ended by beginning their final painting and I urged them to have a “show-worthy” painting by the beginning of the new year. While they were sketching and laying down their first washes, I painted 2 mini snow scenes. They are roughly 4×6 paintings that I drew quickly and painted loosely.
I bought simple cream mats and mounted each painting on a green cardstock sheet. The horizontal painting has a trimmed edge while the vertical painting has a torn edge. Both are available in my Etsy shop for $20 each.
If you are interested in learning to draw or paint, and are in the North Nashville/Madison/Goodlettsville/Whites Creek area, we would love to have you come join our classes. We have a new Beginners class starting in November as well as a new “Advanced” class. Each class will meet on Saturdays from 9-11 at Northside Church of Christ and are free. The beginning class has all supplies provided for you. The advanced class has a supply list of items you will need. It will be discussed at the first meeting. Come join us!
