Andrew Wyeth

Our art teacher used to paint with Andrew Wyeth. I hadn’t heard of him before tonight, but he’s painted some very striking watercolours (some examples here) She told us his white was always the paper, and we tried a couple out.

I really wanted to paint these reeds, but found them hard even with two attempts. The Wyeth is top left, my two impressions below, and two by our teacher on the right.

    Tricky – did he use masking tape to keep the white bits white?

    No I think he just used skill amazingly!
