My Watercolor Art
became an Oil Painting
in a Class Assignment

In Carol Douglas' Watch Me Paint posting, How did you get that color? (online HERE) featuring my watercolors and my palette concluded with an assignment for her students.

"Your assignment is to copy one of Bruce’s paintings—you can choose which one—trying to get the same intensity of color on the first pass, using the paints you have on your own palette. (If you use my palette, you should have no problem hitting all the points in his paintings.) I’m hearing the oil-painters chuckling, thinking 'this is so easy.' Try it first."

This is what I saw while out on a ponds' walk, but this photo wasn't shared with anyone.

This is my watercolor used as a reference image to paint from.

This is what Carol's student, Ann Clowe, painted in oil, using my watercolor as a reference photo. Way to go... What a treat to see my painting reinterpreted.
