Watercolour Lessons at the Painted Turtle Gallery, Creston

At the watercolour workshop, Sept-Oct 2010, at the Painted Turtle Gallery in Creston, B.C., the students create a painting in class related to the day's chosen Design Element. For homework, they complete a work of their own that relates to that week's topic. In previous beginner classes, value and colour were explored. This session of 5 classes emphasizes line, shape and form, texture, and size. Although the focus for this painting was form, it also required techniques about depicting glass and metal. The student's completed their exercise well. The student's homework, where they paint their own compositions is even more impressive!
