A Demo

Painting for a large group like the St. Louis Watercolor Society can be rather intimidating.  But last night I did a demonstration painting for a packed house.  What a lively and fun crowd!  I had a great time!

Before I began painting, I tried to reinforce the concept of keeping things simple.  I suggested three things:
1.  A limited palette
2.  Defining large areas with silhouettes
3.  Using the vignette

My subject was appropriate for the Society since part of their logo is a steamboat.  Here's my demo.
