|The Lighthouse was done in a softer, more of a watercolor method, with Acrylic paints|

Finally the weather has improved and I can hold my classes on my deck upstairs. It was a good day in the studio. I had the pleasure of teaching a couple of sisters with different tastes. Maisie was interested in doing a poppy for her daughter and Carrie, had been struggling to paint a lighthouse, and so we worked on a lighthouse and a poppy. They were both very pleased with the end result. It was a new challenge to have two people working on different subjects, and still managing to give lots of instruction and have them both complete their painting. We used a watercolor card that I had painted as the reference photo and I painted along with Carrie, since I already had a couple of demo paintings of poppies for Maisie to work from.
