My two Japanese friends and I got together in a Japanese restaurant in Long Beach. We have been doing this two to three times a year. It was a senior luncheon meeting.    I believe that our last meeting was four  months ago. So, we had a lot of things to talk about. That’s why We stayed there almost three hours, We left the restaurant 2pm. We had a nice time talk about a senior life.
















The watercolor class last Wednesday was a busy and lively three hours. I did a watercolor demonstration. It was the landscape which I painted using only an ultramarine blue paint. This way students can see the contrast of light and dark easily.

Some people came to see our class. Lately we have people like them visit the class often. It’s very encouraging.

The last week watercolor class was another lively one. We have a lot of new students in the class and senior watercolor instructor was having a hard time remember the names of the students.
 

Other than that, The everything is under control.

6/5/2019 It was the first watercolor class of the month. We had seven students in the class. Surprisingly, more than half of them were newcomers. Just for the safe side, the instructor starts using name sign in front of the each student.

I did a demonstration of watercolor. This time, it was  “White Lily”.

The first step.



This is the first step of my new watercolor painting.
And I add more works and destroy it. LOL.

A good number of students showed up at the class. So, we had a very lively classroom.  Also, we had a visitor in the class. Hopefully, the person will come back to study the watercolor with us.

My watercolor demonstration of this week was the continuation of the subject of the last week. And, this time, My demonstration concentrated more of the bird than background.

This is a demonstration piece I did last watercolor class. I planned to do more work for this painting but it looks good as it is. I am thinking that I should do more work or not. That's the question.
