Bettina

"Bettina"
watercolor (22" x 22")

Isn't it funny how a name can pop into your head....
and it sticks!
 "Bettina" came to me during yesterdays workshop.
I was right in the middle of teaching my students
 that they too can paint a large elephant piece...just follow my 3 simple points:
1. Simply draw and paint shapes (do not focus on depicting an "eye" or the "floppy ear"),
2. Let the values do the descriptions, and
3. Use colors to make it read right

Anyway..."Bettina" is what came of it.
My students did so well, maybe next time you will join us?

Today's painting is available, email me if you are interested
