A watercolor blog.
Back runs are the "blossom" or "flower" produced when part of a wash is too wet and the pigment is lifted up and forced to gather at the leading edge of wetness. Some people try to avoid them at all costs. I happen to like 'em.
Here in Cleveland we're blessed with a multitude of organizations that help us develop as artists. My own career was at a point where I was struggling with meaning and inspiration. When I discovered the Murray Hill Life Drawing Group a gong went off in my brain and my ability to capture the human figure took off. Both the experience of drawing from life and being exposed to inspiring artists (I'm talking to you Terry Orvis and Larry Zuzik) enabled my work to move up a notch or two.
These are some of the art / drawing / illustration groups available to those that are lucky enough to live in the Greater Cleveland Area
