March Artist Demonstration Review: Julia Harding, AAWA member
Julia presented to about 25 people at the Ann Arbor Senior Center facility. She gave a PowerPoint presentation, and brought in several of her watercolor paintings to demonstrate techniques and the effects different papers can have on an artist’s work. She also brought in a “failed” sunflower painting and explained what she had learned from it, and that she had gone on to create another much more successful painting of the subject. The newer painting was so successful that it won 1st place in an AAWA juried exhibit, and someone liked it so much they purchased it! She brought in several of her artist sketch books to demonstrate her pre-work, and color palettes. Everyone seemed to enjoy the demonstration.
