Good morning my creative friends. I am participating in the current on line class, Watercolor Intermediate Techniques. I probably say this all the time, but I think this is my favorite class so far. It is filled with tons of information. As my title implies, I am absorbing so much. Watercolor is a medium that I have wanted to improve upon, and by following these lessons it is feeling so much more natural. I am like the tortoise, slow and steady. Practicing and practicing. I used just three colors of Cotman Water Colors and mixed them.
I have made many attempts. I found that my first choice of paper did not suit my needs so I tried others.
Amazing what difference the choice of paper can make. I finally have a result I am happy with. I wasn't too sure if my painting was worthy of becoming a card, but I decided to give it a try. I actually like the way it turned out.
My card is based on lessons from Day 1
Paper: Strathmore cold press watercolor, and HA card base
Paint: Cotman watercolor tubes
