Nocturne

Painting “Nocturne” was an exciting new avenue to explore.  This week I prepared canvas panels for my Studio Class students and me to experiment with watercolor.  None of us had ever tried this technique but it turned out to be quite satisfactory as a versatile watercolor surface.  Most importantly, canvas won’t need to be put under glazing (glass or plexiglass).  What a good thing!  Here’s my first try; my demo watercolor on canvas:
