      This was difficult - took me days to complete.  I think it was premature to ask for a complicated watercolor at this stage after only a lesson on mixing colors.  There is so much more to painting this bird than just mixing colors.  I won’t even attempt the landscape at this point.CCEDE4C6-A924-4548-B864-32DC2E9EA6C6

      There are so many variations of the 'same' color! That is one challenge, and another is creating the perception of texture. I've discovered details need to wait until theIMG_0010 base color is dry :)

      IMG_0009I have taken a water color class before, but still find it a medium that challenges me! I appreciate the lesson progression, and had fun creating the palette.

      42875EEB-67CC-47E2-A2A9-C6281E7605AC I may have ‘played with’ watercolors as a kid, but this is definitely a first understanding tint, tone, shade, and getting into the depth of mixing to create just the color I was trying to achieve. It took time for some, others I felt worked quickly. As with my original goals for this course, I’m applying patience and as much time as needed to achieve the desired effect. If I haven’t said it before, THANK YOU, Liz, for putting together this course in conjunction with my favorite hobby, birding.

      I used watercolour before, but it was difficult for me. I worked on both palettes, the landscape palette was more complex because it has a huge variety of colours, like all the colours you could think.  I am not sure i have them all. The bird´s palette was shorter, it was great to do this exercise, I enjoyed this more. The landscape was a challenge, because first I focused so much on the brighter colours and  when I though I had finished, then I realized all the colours from the sky were left. Mixing the colours was great.
