A fabulous arts festival on A1A along the Beach in Deerfield Beach.
Come for the day or for the weekend.
This year “I won” “BEST IN THE SHOW”, i received a beautiful purple and white ribbon and a big cash prize.
Take 95 North or South , exit on Hillsboro Blvd head East to SW21st Ave right along the BEACH.
The show is very nice and you can see all the artists easily.
A friend of mine brought his two young sons to my studio, one is 6 years old the other just turned 9. I sat with them and gave them a class on drawing and then working with watercolors on 140lb d’arches..
They were so patient, attentive and focused…
Here is the process and the result.
Ps I did help the older one with the drawing of a few of the orchid leaves, but he did all the other drawing and painting.
The young one did all the drawing , composition of the orchid flowers and leaves. I helped him with drawing the “pot” but he did all the painting himself. He was craving to work with a big brush. I left him in my studio for the last 45 minutes and when he came to see us he revealed his work..
I was commissioned to create and paint 6 original watercolors 22″ x 30″ of the property of the Radisson Blu Resort, Spa and Marina, St Martin ( French Side).
I was flown down to the property and lived there for 8 days drawing and painting . The following watercolors were created over a 3 month time span.
