From watercolor to acrylics!

"Swamp Jewels V" (acrylic) by Helen K. Beacham
I just finished teaching a watercolor workshop this week, where we learned to paint orchids in a beautiful, loose fashion.  This coming Mon-Tues-Wed, I'm teaching an acrylics class where our focus will be to paint a successful painting with fresh color, with as few strokes as possible (because sometimes the simpler, the better!).  My students excite me when their eyes light up during their own, personal aha moments!
