Adventures In Watercolor 1

As promised last week, here are some of the watercolor paintings I did over the course of my class (it’s a 5-week class, and we’re in our last week now). I put this in chronological order – as you can see, my earlier attempts were pretty clumsy…

Anyway, the themes of our first few weeks are still life – flowers, fruits, and food. We only copy from existing paintings, since we weren’t good enough to paint from photos and real life yet (that would be later.)

This is a cake, in case you can’t tell…

This I did at home, based on a photo I took of our fairy lilies. I wanted to try the wet-on-wet technique, but I wasn’t quite there yet:

More to come soon!
