Picture this: A June Saturday calm sunny morning, eleven artists gazing and admiring green prairie grass on rolling Alberta hills, yellow canaries singing gaily in the surrounding trees, flowers proudly flaunting their delightful blooms... that is what my outdoor watercolour class was like! It was positively fun!
Key learnings for the day:
1. Values are very important, squint to see the differences.
3. Have fun.
4. Flowers need little paint.
5. Backgrounds show off flowers.
6. Don't over paint.
7. Ask yourself...What colour is it really?
