This babies were so still on that beautiful spring day, they reminded me of lawn ornaments. It was a "life list" trip to visit the Kentucky Horse Park. I came away with tons of photos for future paintings. I used this particularly photo to do a demonstration for the Willingboro Art Alliance. Talk about nervous. Some of the best regarded local artists were in the audience, and I have to admit to being a bit intimidated before I began my demonstration. But my wet-into-wet approach to watercolor makes it hard to stay nervous for too long. You want to get that paint down before the paper dries to get that soft and flowing feeling. And while it didn't come out as nice as the study I did prior to the demonstration, I had good feedback, including some thank you notes. I'd never done a demonstration before, and I was thrilled for the opportunity. I think it's always good to stretch your limits. I've already framed the study, and this one will also get framed for the next show season.
