A New Medium
I’m trying to learn to use watercolor pencils in Kate’s online class. It’s so scary to start a new medium – nothing ever works the way you plan it, every step is an adventure. And landscape’s never really been my thing….Well, here’s the very first homework assignment! I even went down to the Loire and painted in plein air. I did this in an ordinary sketchbook, not on real watercolor paper (I don’t want to waste it until I’m a bit more sure of myself).
It’s a start. I’m finding the medium harder than it looks, but I’m doing better than the first time I tried ! I can see a lot of problems with this, but I can’t fix them at this point, so I’ll try to do a better one tomorrow.
