Topic: Online Class
The next class I took from Art-Classes.com was a mini-class called Wash and Ink. There were five lessons only and we learned to create loose washes of waterolor and draw over the result to make finished drawings.
In the first lesson the instructor worked on a lilac bloom. I elected to do a hydrangea so I could learn the 'technique' without copying her drawing.
I did two of the 'jellyfish' lesson. I should have stopped with just one as I like the contrast better in the first one I did.
When I got to the tree exercise, I was glad to have taken previous classes (Confident Sketching, Watercolor Jumpstart)
The confident sketching class helped with this one, too.
I refered back to the Watercolor Jumpstart sketchbook in color mixing for this betta fish.
When I was done with the five lessons in the class, I re-watched the demonstration in the advertising and recreated that piece as well.
These are all done on 9 x 12 pieces of Arches watercolor paper so are larger in scale than they appear here. The two jellyfish are side by side on one sheet of the 9 x 12 paper.
