Linda Wellens checks WC progress

I purchased my new toy only minutes before the Miami Watercolor Society demonstration. This was long time in coming. For several years now I had wanted to document Fred Hunt at the easel. You will see he is not exactly happy about this. Years ago when I started the One Ear Society I made a five year plan and it was to video tape artists I knew. I knew of no more interesting people than artists. What makes them so special, what is behind the drive, behind the creativity. There was a moment when I assisted Fred at U of M as he was painting a mural. I watched him load the brush and with one sweep he had painted a completed tree trunk. This is hard to explain, it was one of those magical moments that only a camera could do justice. I witnessed this and am still awe struck with no words to express what I witnessed. I knew this was no ordinary artist. We were not married then. So as not to digress to far, I'd been told that this was a fail proof camera and I had just enough money,for this advertised Sunday special. I had to have it or there would be no demo.
I am so glad, I got it. Now I can report via show and tell. This afternoon Linda Wellens came by to check on the progress of this watercolor demo piece . So, I took the time to record the interchange. The Miami Watercolor Society is going to get their money's worth.


I'm actually spending more time trying to download it and figure out which clip to show. Enjoy and give me feed back. This is another learning curve to hurdle,
Linda came back twice. I include this last image. It is important as you heard what Fred"s plans are for this area and this is when the magic begins. Now you see it, but will you recognize it when it is done.

Fred, the demo at the Miami Watercolor Society was informative and fun! I saw the progress yesterday during Mad Hatter. You have motivated me to "puddle and pin".

Thank you,
Rosie

It has been a marvelous experience watching the mermaid evolve under Fred's creative direction. I will return again to see her and Fred!
