Demos from Last Week's Art Classes at Jack-in-the-Pulpit Studio

Here are some demos from last week's classes.

In the Watercolor Wednesday class we learned how to make strong color with only one layer of paint.  This is a small demo painting of some pencils bound by two blue rubber bands. Class will be held again this Wednesday and anyone can come on any Wednesday, as it is pay as you go.  For more info:

Here are some pencil drawings of an orchid, from the Botanical Drawing class on Thursday nights. We were learning about shape and shading.

We also learned about negative shape and positive shape. and did some shading exercises.

All in all a fun week of classes at Jack-in-the-Pulpit Studio.  Up coming classes include a Flower Painting class and a painting event on painting like Arthur Dove.  For more class info, go to:

Watercolor: Blue Flag Iris

I just completed this year's botanical piece for the Minnesota State Horticultural Society.  Society members can receive a signed print of this blue flag iris when pledging to the annual campaign.
