Baking Day at Watercolor Class

Recently we had baking day, and created wonderful paintings of three loaves of bread cooling on a windowsill. Yes, this was how they did it in the good old days, I know. But can you imagine doing this now? First, you’d have to turn off your air conditioning so that you could open the window. Then, you would have to just cross your fingers and hope that the loaves didn’t get all covered with dust and pollution before they were cool.

Here are some highlights from our baking day.

Teacher Carole (seated) confers with Roselle about a painting she is working on.

Stephanie had already finished her bread painting in an earlier class, so she worked on a portrait of her granddaughters. When she came to class, she had not even started; but by the time she left, the painting was well underway! Stephanie has a real talent, especially painting children.

That’s Stephanie’s finished painting on the left, and my finished painting on the right. So similar – yet so different, too! The colored drawing in the back of the picture is the project we tackled next: Grapes and grape leaves.
Sharon proudly displays her work.
This painting was so much fun to create – but it did leave me with a strong temptation to drop by Publix on the way home and buy a loaf of their wonderful homemade bread.
