thinned paint to apply lots of details all around the design.

Local Art Exhibit

I stopped in at Wickland this afternoon.
This beautiful and historic mansion is showcasing an art exhibit
 with works done  by the students of Studio 2.

Art is on display through out the house with many pieces
featured in the double parlor(s), on the stair way as well as
easel display and more. The flower painting is by
Sally Jones

This Monet  tribute is by
 Hortensia Mayer

If we are in Kentucky then there have to be horses 
and this was a nice moment captured.
The artist is Kristin Emory Blincoe.

A large display board featuring work by Clark Spalding, David Moore,
 Mary Crum Spalding, Todd Johnson, Dixie Hibbs, and Patsy Seay.

Prim Bunnies

are rolling in to town. A project filled with much shading and
lots of detail.  Great work time to improve on our skills.

More entries of spring flowers. This project was so enjoyable and some practice for the shading technique that we will be using in more classes.

Spring Flowers

We explored two handed shading with this project, a paint loaded brush in one hand and a wet brush in the other. The end results are so nice.

Sponge Bunny

Hopping on down the bunny trail we did a detour from the paint brush and picked up the sponge. This project is a quick and easy one using shapes cut from compressed sponge. The detail work is done with a Micron pen. In addition to appearing at Easter this little bunny is great for a baby's room as well.
