|Sally Lightfoot Crab|
|I started a watercolor of one of these crabs. (I don't know|
why it uploaded sideways?!) Anyway, these are the
initial washes...just a light, thin, glaze of color on the white paper.
|Starting to add some of the details and the darks, and building up|
the layers. This is where the illusion of shadows is added (value), and he
starts to take shape. Will keep working on him.

|This is the finished watercolor of the pelican.|
|Here it is with the masking fluid on it. It coats the painted part and allows|
for the wet, loose background to be painted freely. Once it was dry, I wet the
background with clear water.

|This is a sample of what they painted today. They used some|
different waxes, and some gold leaf to get
different effects. It looked like fun!
|Some of their supplies. The class on the 23rd is at 10 am, $75.00, and all supplies|
are included. You can call the gallery if you might be interested.
