Jax's Pulpit

Here is what I did in class last night. It is a different style than what I have been doing. I like parts of it, but it is not really a complete painting, just playing around.

Limited Palettes

Last class from Charlie last night. Down to one class a week - two is too many....

He showed us limited palettes. I painted a different dogwood scene using only Indigo, Burnt Sienna and Yellow Ochre. It has a victorian feel.

New Class - New Teacher

Was recently asked to join a different watercolor study class. Stan Pierce (yes - Stan the model) hand picks students to be part of a group on Tuesdays at his home. I was honored to be asked and last night was my first class. These are just quick studies, not finished paintings - We were to work on focal points... making an area recede... sharp edges contrasting.... darks against lights..
