Day 18

Oil on Canvas
5 x 7
A plein air painting of the view from one of our summer camping spots.
Oh yes, we were right on the water. I love it when that happens!
I taught an art docent lesson in my daughter's 5th grade class
this afternoon. Somewhere I got the bright idea of using  the
book "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain". A great book I
remember one of my college teachers using.  The first
exercise was to copy an upside down drawing. I have to say
I was really surprised how many kids REALLY didn't want to do
that. They'd sneak a peak of the drawing right side up. I guess I was
assuming a young person wouldn't be so resistant to the idea.
I guess I was wrong!
