Since I had about 45-60 minutes to give the demo, rather than try and paint something quickly, I began a painting at home which I divided into 3 parts.
I put a piece of tape to divide the first 1/3 from the rest of the painting, and put a wash of paint on the flowers, leaves and background on the right 2/3.
For my demo, I removed the blue tape and showed how I typically begin my paintings on the untouched left 1/3 of the painting. Then I added more color to the middle portion - so that they could see the beginning, middle and end.
My hope is to complete the painting, tying it all together. Stay tuned!
