Watercolour Painting – Week 2

In the the first week of watercolour painting we learned the basics of the equipment used and some techniques.

This week we practiced the wet-in-wet techniques more:

We did our first real painting that was based on a sketch that everyone followed. My first watercolour painting is titled A Distant City (7.5″ X 5.5″ on paper):

    Have you seen any of my mother-in-laws water colour paintings at my place?

  2. Jody says:

    I don’t remember. You being the IT person in the family, I’m assuming you created a website for her to display and sell her work. Where is it?!

  3. Pender says:

    I’ll give you $7 for the “dirty sink” painting!

  4. Jody says:

    That’ll pay for the paper at least.

  5. Phillip says:

    Wow, that city painting is excellent.

    You need a link to biggify the paintings.

  6. Jody says:

    I didn’t want to biggify it because you’d see the imperfections easier. Ya, I’m expecting too much of myself. Tough shit.

  7. Mean Jean says:

    Resist the urge to throw that away. Its a great beginning but I can hear you saying “imperfections” over and over.

    I am so proud of you!

  8. Jody says:

    I won’t be throwing out. Hell, I’m gonna frame the damn thing.

    And thanks!

    Oh my, Joan, my watercolour painting instructor, is reading this site. I feel pressure to post something interesting and useful now!
