2010 MINIATURE SHOW - "AUTUMN MOTH"
Our local gallery, The Wild Horse, is once again hosting a Miniature Show which opens on November 18th. I was concerned about getting anything ready for this year's show due to the demands of my personalized watercolors. But one of the joys of being an art teacher is that I actually have time occasionally to work on my pieces at school.
Long ago I purchased some small, inexpensive brown/cream, wooden frames. So I decided to create a piece that complimented that natural color scheme. After working for weeks with watercolor I also wanted to play with a different medium. My students and I are all doing ink pieces right now but in a few weeks my advanced students start a new unit with colored pencils. So I pulled out my Derwent colored pencils, some brown Canson Mi-Teintes paper and started playing.
