A Fun Workshop...


Here's Leslie's wonderful finished project from the workshop.  You'll see my poor excuse near the end of this posting.
Overall, it was a wonderful weekend.  I managed to get in almost 60 very scenic miles on the bike and enjoyed a fun workshop too.  I learned a new approach to poured watercolors in Leslie Redhead's Pouring Luminous Watercolors Workshop.  Leslie was a wonderful patient teacher and it was such a fun group to hang out with at the Pocatello Art Center too. 
Here's some photos from the workshop...

Leslie demonstrating the pouring method; adding yellow watercolor on second pour.

Then, red was added on each side of the yellow.

Leslie then spread watercolor around by tipping the painting.

Then, Leslie poured off the paint.



Now here's examples of my work....
After the first pour.

Almost there....
After the 4th pour.

And then....
Here's what I ended up with.  It still needs some work done to it.
