July was a hot month just about everywhere, but it was so hot in New Smyrna Beach that I couldn't do much walking on the beach. Also I didn't stay in an oceanfront condo this time, so I had to give up my sunrise walks and photos.
The wildlife certification classes were a fast and furious three weeks of painting, but we finally got through it and came away with some pretty awesome paintings and ideas for other projects. Pretty soon, I'll be adding some animal paintings to my class offerings, and I hope it will be around the first of the year 2017. Most of them will be on 16x20 or 18x24 canvases and will require a little more time than landscapes, seascapes and even florals. But they are so much fun!
I really enjoy teaching the Bob Ross method even more than I thought I would. Just seeing the looks on the faces of beginners is worth all the time and effort!
If you have never painted before but always wanted to give it a try, take a class from me or from another Certified Ross Instructor (CRI). There is no supply list to buy, just come and paint. Give me a call with any questions. Happy Painting!
