Tangerines and Tulips - class demo

                                                     mixed watermedia on paper 24x18

My demonstration from the class today.
Even though I`m not a still life guy, I wanted to work from something directly and show that the challenge was fun and rewarding. It was. With 16 sets of eyes watching and with constant, engaging conversation, nonetheless, it coalesced into something recognizable. It was an interactive experience with suggestions offered and acted upon. Painting always has a miraculous quality when it goes right but it seems especially amazing when this happens in a teaching situation. Yet I hear this is actually common. Something is afoot!
