Birds and ESO Class

Hi,Been working on the heron head. Starting this Thursday,at the ESO in Belle Haven,Va,I'm teaching "Watercolor For the Birds". I'll be teaching watercolor painting of different birds for 6 Thursday mornings.Composition,drawing--,the first class will be cardinals. ESO is an old school that was converted into an art center. Great place,lots of different classes are available for all ages,everything from Karate with Robert Buckner,Pottery with Elizabeth Hunt,dance,so much more--wonderful opportunities for everyone.
Here are also a few sketches from my sketchbook. I"m drinking tons of water and coffee and I sure hope my headache will be manageable for the class. Will give all I've got.. take care,Diana


  1. Peeking into your sketchbook, your classes that your doing ...it will be so much fun..
    I wish I were there with you...
    you could teach me so much...
    please feel better ... ( I am doing good) even wanting to paint and be normal?
    hugs, BJ

  2. Love this bird ( is it a heron?) Very interested in your technique using the saran wrap, what a lovely background! Wish I were closer to take your class, would love to learn more about the poured watercolors, hope you feel better soon.

  3. Wish I could take your class! The heron's coming along beautifully--the eye and beak are fabulous.
    (I have found the bright white walls and fluorescent lights in some art studios can bring on a migraine that produces a kind of snow-blindness ... So be careful not to get too much bright, reflected light!)

  4. Thank you BJ! hope you are feeling better, keep resting,Ok! Thanks Maria, keep doing what you are your work is lovely. Laura thank you too, I did't know that. Eventually this will go away. I Want to paint and can't do too much at a time.. but it will come. thank you, Your work is wonderful Laura, love to you all, Diana
