This class met at Jerry's Art-a-Rama, and the demo station had a mirror to show the class what the instructor was doing. For people like me with directional problems, it was somewhat disconcerting to see him painting in reverse. But that's okay. He walked around with his in-progress painting often.

This afternoon is my class with Karlyn Holman on Painting Colorful Boats. I am looking forward to being in her class again.
Here is the description:
Paint these colorful boats from Vernazza, Italy on this unique surface. You will be provided with a pre-drawn sketch of these boats, stretched onto a wooden frame. Paint this image and then add a spray of acrylic and frame your finished painting like an oil painting. This lesson is an abstract composition, as well as, an on location scene. The interlocking shapes and bright colors form a strong design that is exciting to paint. Join the fun and take home a finished painting on canvas.
Each student will be provided with a printed image on canvas, stretched on a stretcher. Bring your favorite watercolor paints and brushes.
If you live in the Raleigh area and have any need for paints, paper, brushes, or instructional materials, the Trade Show in the North Raleigh Hilton is free and has some great deals, plus lots of famous painters on hand doing demos.
