"Strawberries & Lace" Watercolor

This is the first in a series of postings which are showing my first comprehensive watercolor classes several years ago. I was attending classes with Jan Foss, a watercolorist in Incline Village, Lake Tahoe. These classes were so much fun. You can visit Jan's website at .

This first one was from a photograph she took of her own still life. She printed these pictures for us to work from, and demonstrated how to do lace and shadows and the strawberries. The lace was fun. You just draw the spaces or holes in the lace, then paint in there with a pale shadow color. I was very happy how it came out, but being a workshop piece and from the teacher's photo, I cannot sign it and enter it in shows or sell it.
