    Photos that I think would work with the technique. Followed by work by the class we did 2 years ago followed, in turn, by the work of Raul Colon, originator of the technique.

    We have been working with watercolor, scratches and colored pencils. Sally showed us her friend’s beautiful bird painting. Out of these two things I thought it might be fun to do birds using our scratch technique for the textures of the feathers. I’ve put up some photos and will probably find more. I’m not sure what I’ll paint.

      I look forward to attending the April 2nd Watercolor Zoom Class.
      Thank you!!!



      My watercolor instructor is now starting a zoom watercolor class. I helping her some with the technology since I’m doing an online college class due to the virus. One question how you do get to present the picture of painting the watercolor from above? What type of camera do you have and how do you mount it?

      I am guessing the answer to your 07-12-2020 question is YOU.
