Workshop in St Bernard

This past week I drove back to New Orleans to teach a watercolor painting workshop for the St Bernard Art Guild. The workshop was held in the art room at Nunez College in Chalmette, which of course is a great place to teach art. Here's a few of the students working on their paintings...We did a seascape with a sailboat this time, and here's my painting with the sky painted in. The masking fluid over the boat part of the painting protects the white of the paper while the sky and water are painted in.

This photo shows my painting nearly finished, just needing a few more details.
The finished painting after a thin glaze is washed over it, to warm up the foreground colors and make the water appear more translucent.

We all had a wonderful time at the workshop, and everyone finished two fantastic paintings. It's especially great that the St Bernard Art Guild awarded 5 scholarships for art teachers to attend the workshop! Kudos to St Bernard Art Guild! Scholarships for art teachers to attend workshops goes a long way towards speading art education, as the teachers take the skills that they learn and pass them on to their own students for years to come.
