Water or Plastic?
Currently, or as they say on the stupid-ass television news broadcasts, "RIGHT NOW", I am teaching a six week, once-a-week watercolor painting class at my studio. I am having my students practice watercolor painting techniques without the added complication and distraction of color. They are painting in black and white only. This is a demo I watercolored of a martini. Getting thirsty? . In an acrylic painting class that I'm teaching "RIGHT NOW" at Sacramento City College, I am having my students doing the same thing as represented with this second demo. NEWS FLASH - if you can't control your painting technique and value structure, you are working at a huge disadvantage.
