I was able to attend the Washington Education Association Leadership Accademy this week. It was a wonderful experience being immersed a learning environment with a couple hundred educators. Amazing.
I worked on one watercolor pencil painting this week and I actually finished it! This poppy was done usingAlbretch Durer Watercolor pencils on 140# watercolor paper in my new watercolor journal that I made last week. this is from a photo that I took a couple weeks ago while walking into downtown Vancouver. I love the smooth application of these pencils!
On my way up to the conference I had the opportunity to visit the Daniel Smith art supplies store in South Seattle. It was so cool! I even found most of the Albretch Durer pencils that Kate Johnson reccommends for light fastness. that's what I used for my poppy. I love these pencils!
On another note, today was my grandfather's 100th birthday! Yup, 8-8-8 was when he was born. It is so exciting to me to think of all the things that have changed and happened in the world since he was born. It sort of boggles my mind. We had about 20 family members at lunch and then more showed up at Grandpa and Grandma's house for cake and Icecream too. It was so fun to see folks I havn't seen for almost 20 years!
I hope you have a great weekend and make sure to tell those you care about what you think!
