“I keep painting the trees -
I'm still learning how to see them;
I'm still discovering how to render their forms.
I will spend a lifetime doing that.
Maybe someday I'll get it right.”
~ Alan Lee
I taught a watercolor class today and this was my demo (another version of day 1). Some of my students are having a hard time loving Yupo paper and the alcohol inks, so I usually do a wet-in-wet demo in watercolor on traditional watercolor paper for them. After painting in watercolor on cotton rag for over 40 years, I can usually pull it off, even though I'm a little rusty. See some of my other 30 paintings in 30 days in-progress shots, more about my techniques and thoughts about doing a series, later today, right here. Like I always say; "Repetition is the key to mastery.", so It is never time wasted, to redo and repaint something again.
