Another Bouquet

12" x 16" Watercolor
So in my class today, we made bouquets out of all the pretty flowers that I brought in, and painted them. As the instructor, I was hoping that my painting would turn out better than this - but it did turn out to be a teaching moment. I showed them what I didn't like about it, and what I did. I think it helps sometimes to show them that I can have problems with a painting that I did, too! (What was I thinking about putting that little leaf "skirt" around the top of the vase?!) So, next week, they want to learn about painting trees. Oh Dear.........!

This has lovely moments! I "teach" watercolor at my local senior center having painted a little over a year and a half. I have learned a lot by teaching, but it keeps me on my toes!
