Several folks took my pouring workshop at the Cincinnati Art Club at the end of April.
All hard at work.
On Day 1 we all painted together in the morning to get started, then they were on their own for the rest of the day since the process time will begin to vary by individual.

New student, new to painting

Another new student and new to painting

Love the delicate pinks and corals in this one

This student was not happy that her lines showed - so I suggested that she "embrace and go with it."
She will be adding some line work with a Micron pen to actually accentuate the lines more

Another one with such beautiful and delicate color changes

On Day 2 they could paint their own, with my help.

The following photos are of some of the work completed over that weekend.  Of course, I didn't get photos of everything - but would you expect anything else from me!
I thought this one turned out beautifully - she thinks she will re-do it with some slight changes

Day 2 - first time pouring - "by George, I think she's got it"

What a challenge this one was - how to represent poured Gatorade!
I think she did a very good job!

How fun to see show off your workshop students work! I love how varied they all are...and so beautiful too. Looks like everyone had a great time :)

I've never tried pouring, but these photos make me want to. Something so luminescent about the colors.
Your students must have gone home happy!
