Garry Oak of Anderson Hill
11x14"

Now that I am settled into our new home, I have started teaching classes at the Kerrisdale Community Centre. It is just a small group of beginners but they are great. I teach them watercolor and they teach me about what is going on in the area.
The course is on landscapes. The first couple of weeks I showed them a few simple exercises in watercolor before I had them do the above scene. The painting is of Anderson Hill Park in Victoria. I wish I had scenes of Vancouver but being winter, it has been hard to get decent photos. I must admit that I don't like the cold and am no longer a fan of the rain.
I will be teaching at the centre again in the fall.

I like how you have the varied colors layered in the foreground. I'd say something about the weather, but I think we all feel the same way ... YUCK!!!
