Last Thursday concluded the summer painting class where students completed one watercolour painting and multiple sketches over a three week period. These works were completed on-site with two weeks spent in the Paseo Arts District in Oklahoma City, and three days spent on-site at the Myriad Botanical Gardens in downtown Oklahoma City. The students studied the use of one- and two-point perspective, and how the rule-of-thirds, the Golden Ratio, and the Fibonacci Spiral are used to develop one’s composition in an artwork.
This three week period also allowed me to sketch and paint a little as I worked alongside the students – something I rarely have time to do during the school year. The first five paintings (below) are the finished student watercolour paintings that were completed while in the Paseo. The other paintings in the gallery below are what I was able to complete during the three week period, which includes paintings of each student as they were working on-site.
