We painted daisies and luscious bright pink and peach bougainvillea in my Florida class on Day 1, and spent part of that time trying to figure out what the plural of bougainvillea was/is/could be. When we weren't discussing grammar, we mixed warm and cool purples, and talked about the value of glazing over opaques, and the cool way you can make colorful jewel tones glow. Have you ever heard anyone say they didn't like a painting because there was too much color in it? Me neither...! On Day 2, we painted sunflowers. Here's a sneak peek at Bobbi's gorgeous sunflower below, a teaser for my post tomorrow so stay tuned!
