New Skillshare Class: Watercolor Milk and Cookies

My newest class is up on Skillshare: Watercolor Milk and Cookies.
About This Class
Join me as I the classic and loved snack, milk and cookies using watercolor paint and basic supplies. We will paint three images that you can use in your journal, for practice, or to make images for your portfolio.
These images are a glass milk jug with a stack of cookies, a milk jug with a single cookie leaning against it, and a delicious stack of cookies on their own.
Techniques include creating
  • cast shadow
  • caramelized cookie texture
  • glass transparency
  • watercolor layering
This class is geared towards beginners and advanced beginners. There is a downloadabe class template to assist you with the preliminarty sketches, or you can draw your own, unassisted. The key to this class is layering light colors on the milk jug and creating contrast with rich colors in the cookies.

This week was filled with good things.
This week was full of gorgeous weather. I was able to put away my winter hat and long pants and play tennis in my skirt and sleeveless top. What a lovely feeling.
My daughter took some time away and visited for a long weekend. It was fantastic to walk into the house and see her sitting working on her computer.
My father is learning to text! I sent him a quick text and he responded.
I've been working on my artwork and researching new topics, my favorite part of the job.
