I’ve picked up my brushes again and am attempting to learn more about watercolor painting. I signed up for an online class. (It was on sale for Black Friday!) First step: a color wheel. Now, I have other color wheels from other classes, but even so, I’m going to go through all the assignments.
I used Azo Yellow, Organic Vermillion, and French Ultramarine. My first attempt was just okay. I muddied up the green/blue mixture.
I tried it again with results that I liked better.
Throughout June I participated in the #30x30DirectWatercolor Challenge. I experimented quite a bit, so most of what I painted isn’t worth showing. But I got brave and painted Van Gogh’s Clogs. I actually got to see this painting at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston. Wonderful exhibit.
It’s June, again! Time for the #30x30DirectWatercolor Challenge 2019. The idea is to paint a watercolor each day in June without an underlying drawing. Yep, just paint directly onto the paper. hahahaha
