My husband told me that it “wasn’t up to my usual standard” and that I should not have posted that series.
I told him that it was posted as a simple learning device that would enable people to follow along if they so desired, and that I had stated as much in the post.
If you, like my husband, thought it was below standard, that is the reason – it was not meant to be a masterpiece, but a learning device.
It has been my experience that I must paint a demo to encourage rather then intimidate my students.
The lighthouse painting was done for the 3-hour “make and take” class, and I think that the painting met its purpose well.
