watercolor class

I have always loved the look of watercolors but did not have experience painting with them. I recently joined a watercolor / open studio class and am really enjoying it so far. Learning to use watercolors makes me think of a dear great aunt, who painted wonderful watercolors.

First day of class: getting to know my (adorable) paints,
then trying a rose from a photograph I took.
Second version of the same rose, done at home.
Roses one and two.

Daffodil, painted from life.

On my teacher's advice, trying out a background color
to help a white flower pop.


  1. These are even more beautiful in the, um, paper.

  2. Beautiful!! The rose is my favorite.
