Teaching Watercolor Class

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..

Fantastic,, both of these boys are highly creative..
