I thought it would be fun and mind expanding to take a watercolor class this Winter. Key West is home to many painters and I just love the watercolors with local flavor.
The local art center is called The Studios of Key West (TSKW.org).
It was the Key West armory, built around 1900 and is a very cool looking building.
There are also concerts. It is definitely the place to be if you are interested in learning.
I decided to expand my horizons during this winter sojourn and take a watercolor class. My instructor is a local watercolor painter named Sean Callahan. Can you see the mirror slanted over his worktable? That's how everyone could see his demo.
I know that my desires and expectations were high. But I was seriously worried about my talent!
I don't know why I am sharing my first attempt. I wanted to paint palm trees with bicycles leaning against them, and I painted marbles.
I am supposed to paint a weekful of marbles. It's always about the basics!
