Highlands Beauty

Highlands Beauty
12 x 16 Watercolor by Pat Fiorello


Spent last Thursday and Friday up in beautiful Highlands, North Carolina teaching a 2 day workshop "Capturing the Essence of Flowers in Watercolor"
Had lots of fun with a great group of students.  

I made a quick video of the demo painting I did so you can see how it unfolded from start to finish.  Press arrow below to play.

In watercolor it's easiest (though not the only way) to work light to dark. I may try to do this painting in oils as well- the complete opposite process- working dark to light and will share that when I do.

I'll be back at the Bascom teaching "Painting Landscapes in Watercolor" October 22-24. It will be a great time to be there while the leaves are changing this fall. For more information or to register and join in the fun click on The Bascom .
