Today we got to learn from the fabulous Omar Rayyan!
We got to hear about some of his influences and processes -
He brought stacks of originals and prints for us to look at!
Or drool over, as the case may be....
But best of all, we got to watch him paint!
He does things with watercolor that nobody else does. So fun to watch!
And then we were sent off to fend for ourselves.
Well, maybe not for ourselves... We did get a lot of input -
Advice, insight - personalized tutoring!
So, we tried it all out.
(A 'master copy' of a tiny Omar original...)
A very productive first day! So looking forward to the next one.
