Report from the June meeting

Joanne was so kind to do the challenge critique this time. This seemed to have been a very challenging topic indeed, and we had a bit of a drop in entries. Afterwards Roy showed us a tutorial by Jan Kunz: "Painting Watercolor Portraits". Although this video was considerably longer than the short John Lovett ones, it still made portrait painting look so easy. It also was another reminder not to shy away from many glazes. Even with Jan's very systematic approach with value charts it is not easy to get the value right from the start.
