I led a watercolor sketching class this morning at the NC Botanical Garden.
We wore masks and practiced social distancing.
And oh how wonderful to be in a place full of beauty.
I did quick demos of three techniques: watercolor brush, watercolor pencil, and negative painting.
Here is my demo piece reworked with layers of watercolor and pen and ink.
Hi dear friends,
Tomorrow I’m teaching a class at the North Carolina Botanical Garden.
We will be masking up and social distancing. My goal is to make everyone feel safe and have fun!
White glow in meadow
Lilies among tall grasses
Wild Easter Lily.
Art Prescription: I’ve been seeing these beautiful lilies in the woods and meadows at Mason Farm. They are Atamasco Lily (Zephranthes atamasco) and they flourish in wetlands.

Gentle breeze ripples
Branches with fresh young leaves sway
Steady rolling waves.
Art Prescription: How peaceful to stand under a new canopy of leaves and experience the wind.
