Watercolor Still Life Demo #3 July 1, 2011

In 1989 I returned to the Gardens of Giverny to the home of Claude Monet. I purchased a large quantity of silk flowers at the garden, which I had shipped home, thinking I would use them for still-life painting, some day. It's funny they've been sitting in that box, unopened, for 21 years, until I was asked by Kaaren Robertson to substitute for her watercolor painting class...

So, with a single light sourse, I set up a still life for the class to work from, using the flowers I've been saving for all this time.

I kinda like painting in watercolors (again)
