More examples from work
Here are a couple of tiny (4×6) watercolors I knocked out as examples for a one day lesson with 8th graders.
The hope was they could create a post card and see their artwork send through snail mail, a concept that is frighteningly alien to them.
These were done in about 3 minutes each but I was surprised by the results and was reminded again not to get too precious with my own work. Bob Ross may not have been Thomas Cole but his theory of happy accidents holds some water.
This next is a more finished piece (a view of Acadia National Park) done as a donation to Portland’s Reiche School Fundraising Auction. Notice how I tighten up when a piece is being done “for a reason”.
