I have been brushing up on my watercolor because I have another teaching assignment on a cruise ship. This time, we are going to the Panama Canal. I teach watercolor on the ship when we are at sea. Since watercolor isn't my main medium of painting, I decided I better brush up before leaving in April.
This is a painting I did of white roses. Of course, even though flowers may be white, their shadows aren't. I put in a darker background to make the white roses stand out. I've been practicing my watercolor each week, so by April, I should be back in the saddle again. I'm planning on putting this painting at the Northern Virginia Art Center for February. There will be a reception on Fri. Feb 8 from 5 - 8 pm. Stop by and have some wine and chocolate (yes! we are featuring chocolate at this month's reception!) and see some of the other watercolors I've been working on.
