"Pears & Glass" Workshop, October 4, 5 & 6

When I do the workshops, I always do the watercolor painting in advance of the class.  So I've been working on our "Pears & Glass" still life, getting ready.  Today I did the cloth which was so much fun to do.  I've never done stripes.  So I built the structure of the cloth using lamp black, naples yellow, burnt sienna and ultramarine.  Then striped the cloth using ultramarine and lamp black.
I am also experimenting with different papers.  As some of you know, I'm getting weary of the "Brite White" of Arches being so yellow.  For this painting I'm using Fabriano Artistico 300#, cold press, bright white.  I like it.  It is a nice white, and works well with my technique.
Next it's on to the pears....stay tuned.
The workshop which is October 4, 5, 6.
