Well, I thought, this is challenging. Shortly after that class, I started taking an online workshop on watercolor sketching through the Strathmore website. I watched the first video. What was the first thing that Cathy (Kate) Johnson talk about? What else? Washes. So I did washes, repeatedly. I've posted some of those paintings.
Here are my earlier paintings:
|This is one tree, with a colorful background, mostly a pink and yellow sky.|
|Here is my fun little house. It is meant to be a bit primitive. It is under a happy blue sky (a flat wash)|
|A clump of trees in front of an early evening sky.|
