Watercolor Words and Wanderings

Thursday night marked the end of night teaching for me until fall. I enjoy teaching, it really pushes me to understand watercolor. As part of class I was demonstrating how to use gouache ( think super opaque watercolor paint) and I had such a good time with it….I got carried away! You know the drill hover over picture for more info!

This was a lesson from the class I am taking- the teacher, Becky Darling, wanted us to see the reflected color on the white tea pot.

We also painted mini still life paintings in class…this is 4″ x 6″ in size.

Wow-I have a lot this week. Below is a splatter tree with blown roots. This is a great exercise to get folks to loosen up and have fun! Color theory 101- primary colors are red, blue and yellow. Analogous colors are next to each other on the color wheel, like yellow, orange and red or blue, blue green and green.

Yup I still have more…below are some examples of how to paint trees. Trees were focus of our last class.

Lastly my friend Bin does a count down to spring on her FB page and I asked if I could do a number….here it is …it reminds me of those color blindness tests 🙂


Until next week- Peace Out- Bec
