2021 has really moved forward! The nice quiet New Years Eve with nary a firecracker or banging pot outside certainly isn't staying quiet. Between the wind storms and daily rain, the days have just flown by. That is good in many ways, not great when I haven't even put my calendar of new projects up.
Opus Art Supplies had 100 people watching my "Let's Face it" demonstration in watercolour. Lots of terrific questions which Anna Altwein fielded so well! Thank you to everyone who signed up and joined in. I recognized a few faces, but after the demo started, I was so focused, I forgot to flip through screens to see more of the attendees. The video of my skin tones in watercolour is now public on YouTube, so anyone can view at their leisure. It includes two other skin types as well. More videos will be coming, but my first priority is getting all the materials ready for my online classes.
My new beginner's online class, along with my intermediate watercolour class are filling up and one begins this Friday. A suggestion was to have the beginner's as a household, so that parents and kids could both join in if they wished. I'm looking forward to this aspect of the class as well.
Tomorrow, I will drop off my painting to the Federation Gallery at Granville Island for the upcoming "works on paper" show.
I need to get some supplies at Opus, so I will check out the shop for a few minutes if the parking and line up isn't too busy. I just might call ahead and see if I can just do a curbside pickup. I really want a larger DaVinci quill brush.
lots of great things in the works including trying my hand at some abstracts - so much more difficult than I thought they would be. However, it's all about getting out of the comfort zone and learning something new to see what creativity can come of it!
