The Great Wave of Homework by K. Ryan Henisey in Los Angeles, California. As a riff on Hokusai’s The Great Wave Henisey shows how much homework he gives his students. He is a first grade teacher and, dare I say it, a heckuva artist. Love this. I love that The Watercolor Gallery is now part […]
Great Blue Heron by Leslie Redhead in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Leslie recently held two workshops (one on Quadra Island – lucky lady) and for one of those workshops she did this Great Blue Heron.

Gamin au chien (The dog kid) by Yann Lesacher in Lamballe, France. Lesacher literally has hundreds of paintings that I could have featured. His nature paintings are extremely well detailed and are interesting studies. I chose this one because of the way he used wet technique on the background. Very well done.
