I’ve been working on learning how to better use watercolors thanks to Kate Johnson’s watercolor class. I’m a chapter or two behind, but I’ve been working on flowers this week. After doing a few of the exercises, I began to try my hand using some roses and from my yard. The results were terrifyingly bad at first, but I’m slowly improving. Here they are, in order of their execution. One thing I’ve learned is that the quality of the paper is very important, and that practice may not make perfect, but it helps a lot.
Now I just have to do a few dozen more!
