Painting The Light Part 1
Part 1 is all about getting the detail right, working step by step for a marvelous still life filled with antique items for putting baby to bed.
You'll paint the blue items first, an antique lamp, baby quilt and toy.
Next, you'll paint the brown items, the lamp and the basket.
When you work step by step, light layer, then medium layer, then dark, watercolor detail is very doable.
This lesson contains two outline pages - an 8 x 10 and a larger outline page that can be printer in two sheets and combined.
Hi, I'm Deb Watson - a self taught artist and long time watercolor teacher
My story is simple.
I loved drawing from childhood, but was discouraged from art as a waste of time. So, I became a nurse, worked at a lot of hospitals and raised a family. But I kept painting.
Over time, I became better at the realism I loved, and just kept working toward improving through painting and self-study. I've always enjoyed painting scenes from my life and small town community (which I call my Small Town America series).
My paintings are not usually famous or majestic subjects, often they're just everyday stuff I see around. But I see so much beauty there, and show it to the rest of the world by painting it.
Now, my watercolors have been in exhibits and won awards across the nation. Yet, it's when my art connects me to other people that it's really done what I wanted, and teaching certainly does that!
