STUDENT WORK “FLORIDA LANDSCAPE”

This week I taught my adult students how to paint skies at sunset and palm trees swaying in the ocean breeze. We learned how to move the brush in such a way as to get the impression of a palm tree without actually rendering one. The students painted wet on wet with bright colors for the sky and wiped out the sun with a sea sponge. The biggest challenge was remembering not to make the images too symmetrical.  Variety of the size and shapes of objects in your composition makes a better design. Below are the paintings the students completed in class. I think you will be amazed!

Great Right? My students always remind me to keep it simple. Let me know what you think. I love to hear from you.
