I love it when a student can teach me something I was unaware of, that's what makes art so special and exciting. We can always learn something new even from stark beginners.  :heeha:      :yippee:

Today my seniors got to try the Dr. PH Martin India Inks on watercolor paper.   Rather than taping down the watercolor paper, we wet sheet protectors and placed the wc paper on them, then painted clean water onto the paper.  The papers stayed flat the whole time we worked with them.

The abstracts were as different as the 12 people who painted them.  Really so proud of them.

Thank you for all your encouraging comments on my work with my seniors.

We did acrylics and ink on mini 3-inch magnetic canvases today. Colors are much brighter than the photo. We put them on wax paper to dry overnight. They had so much fun doing these. So proud of them.

I think it may be me missing the sea... but I am seeing all sorts of sea creatures and sea views in these. Beautifully done one and all.  O0
