Animal Month

Guided by Emily Hirtle, at the Main Line Art Center I started to think about how I wanted to represent different animals with watercolor and gouache. I no longer find watercolor scary and I am motivated by representing the many animals in my life. I want to get better at drawing and painting because I love animals! Emily inspired the class with images of animals by Wyeth, Sargent, and other artists who captured color and gesture with watercolor. I will keep practicing seeing the shapes that form animal bodies.
