Vino VanGogh

While in Florida we had a "girl painting party" with Nana at a place called Vino Van Gogh.

These paint studios seem to be opening all over.  When we arrived, we looked at all the painting samples on the walls and then chose our spots close to the instructor.

The tables had white butcher paper and a blank canvas for each person.  We were directed to the back where the paint colors were set out and we pumped the colors we would need onto our palette.  Then it was time to start creating our own version of Van Gogh's "Water Lilies".
The instructor told us which brush to use, how to mix our colors (we did this right on the paper on the tables), and what to do for each step starting with the background.


There were about 10 people in the class and it was interesting to see how everyone's painting was a little different.
Our three paintings ended up looking like this:
Can you guess which painting belongs to each of us?

If not, this will help:

Aunt Phyl guessed right away without any help. I really think that Grace has great potential as an artist>
