So, I finished my first watercolor class today. It was a lot of fun! The ladies in the class are really nice and I really like my teacher, Ken Austin. He is very talented...I have a lot to learn!
The paintings above were done in an exercise to loosen up.
Painting 1: We were asked to draw and paint two objects with one object touching one side of the paper. We had 5 minutes to complete the exercise.
Painting 2: We were asked to draw three objects with two objects touching the sides of the paper, only painting the negative space. We had 10 minutes to complete the exercise.
Painting 3: We were asked to draw and paint four objects, with three items touching the sides of the paper in 15 minutes.
Painting so quickly was a challenge...and I have homework! I'll be posting a complete loose painting later this week.
