Please let me introduce you to a lovely young (7 1/2) lady who graced my studio today. This was Henlee Martin’s first class and she arrived calm and ready to paint. She had not seen any of the Joy of Painting shows but her dad grew up watching Bob Ross paint his “happy little trees”. It did not take this girl long to get into the groove. She was so attentive, watching and noting each of the steps as I demonstrated them. And then, she was very adept at transferring what she had seen to the canvas.
Our class ran just over an hour and in that time she learned a lot and it resulted in an excellent first painting. Henlee is in to mermaids and next class wants something with an ocean theme. I look forward to that.
Let’s have a look at the pictures from her time in the studio:
