Today was a gloomy, wet Monday, for sure. That didn't seem to affect my Exploring Watercolor class at Hithergreen Center. Several finished pieces they've been working on--one even got a round of applause at critique. Others did smaller paintings from start to finish during class and did a great job on them. They're doing a lot more painting and taking less time trying to decide what to paint. Also, the lesson on grids two weeks ago has had a good effect. Those who are using them are making better drawings and are now able to enlarge their source pictures instead of tracing them the same size. I'm already getting excited about our exhibit in the fall, and I know they'll be even better by then.
