“Reflections In Venice”

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..
Enjoy

World traveler and local painter Eileen Seitz has been a regular at the South Miami Art Festival for 12 years. “I was born in Manhattan in the concrete jungle. When I began
Traveling and experiencing the bright colors of the tropics while surfing in the Virgin Islands I decided to make Florida my home. I feel I am giving back to people the spirit of living through drawing and painting to remind them of a simple way of life. I am Blessed to be able to capture the harmonious beauty of the sunlit tropical colors that surround us
everywhere.” The Multi-dimensional appearing painting “Peacocks in Paradise” is exuberantly colored in bright pinks, yellows and blues with smiling Hibiscus throughout the landscape and two peacocks almost hiding behind the flowers
while the sea beckons in the background.

The Giclee (or fine art print, original is sold) of “Side by Side” is a simple wooden dock image from Camden, Maine with colorful canoes resting alongside each otherin a tranquil sapphire bay at sunset.

LET ME FIND THE SEA

for-website

Sea Turtle Oversight Protection www.SeaTurtleOP.org,  commissioned Eileen Seitz to paint this magnificent night scene of a turtle returning to sea.

6″ x 9″ Postcards were printed and placed into the hotel bedrooms along Broward County’s Beaches to guide and ask the guests to close the blinds at night before they leave the room.

STOP is a sea turtle conservation organization that is dedicated to the scientific and educational aspects of the human impacts to sea turtles on Broward County’s beaches, nationally and internationally.

Our primary directive is to humanly rescue the hatchlings from injury and death caused by
disorientation due to artificial illumination of the nesting habitat.
The science is obtained from our collection of data through real time observation and FWC
approved night vision cameras filming the nightly hatch outs and disorientation events of
endangered and threatened sea turtle hatchlings.

This data is compiled, organized, updated and available to the public via our website.
The data pool is the most extensive and accurate disorientation database in the state
of Florida to date operated by a private nonprofit.
