1. Watercolor Pumpkin Spice Treats Class Intro: Hello. I'm Daniella Melon, artist and author here on skill share. Welcome to the first class in my tasty treats, Siri's watercolor pumpkin spice in today's class will be inspired by the quintessential flavor of autumn. I'll demonstrate watercolor techniques to create illustrations based on Pumpkin Spice, which makes for great images for greeting cards, table settings and journal pages. We'll paint a whole pie, a slice of pie, a pumpkin, sugar cookie, a pumpkin role and, of course, a pumpkin spice latte. We'll use just basic watercolor supplies, and there's even a bonus lesson for an adorable slice of pie. I hope you'll create your favorite tasty treat and then posted in the project section for this class. Let's get started. 2. Class Supplies: the supplies for our watercolor, pumpkin, spice class or basic watercolor supplies. Here we have paints in the palette, squeezed out from a tube, the colors that I like to use, two jugs of water, a larger jug and a smaller drug to keep my brush clean and to use for clear glazes. I've cut my watercolor paper £140. Cut it down to size. I have some five by seven, some four by sixes and some four by five. Pencil and an eraser have await gel pen for after effects. I have some optional supplies of a spray bottle and a pipette toe. Add water to my palette, and then I have the template, which is included in the class notes. For these. You'll cut out the shapes and trace them. If you need help drawing you, could there also a good little reference tool? I have a paper towel here, too, dad. My brush in to pick up some paint as needed, and then I have course. My watercolor brushes. Um, any size that you'd like to use. I U 0 12 46 and 0/12. Let's get started. Do you 3. Lesson #1 Whole Pumpkin Pie: for our first class. We're gonna make a whole pumpkin pie here. I've taken the template, cut it out and traced around it. And then lightly with pencil, I've sketched the shape of the pie crust, the pie and the pie tin that I'm gonna use. First thing I'm gonna do is paint a clear glaze on the center of the pie where the custard would be. I'm trying to leave some spite spaces that do not have paint. That will be my highlights. Then I'm gonna drop in some color. We want some really rich colors from deep oranges and browns, so it makes up some color here. I'm taking some brown and some orange. I'll make a blend of them as well. With a smaller brush, I'll drop in some color, start with the brown and the pies are gonna be darker color closer to the edge of the crust again. Watercolor dries light and then weaken. Add more layers of it's not dark enough for us, but it will always dry lighter than the color present At first. Here I am destructing. A lot of oranges and browns combined, not trying to blend them, but letting them blend on their own. I'm using my small brush to go around the edge and then I'll add more color in the center. Okay, Lets I have that. But I'll start with more color, have a little quicker after I get my outline created, and then I'm gonna add some golden as well. So this is a wet on wet technique where the paper is wet with a clear wash. And then I'm adding, my pigment here are dropping some of that golden color. See how it interacts with the orange. Gives kind of a nice baked pumpkin look. Okay, so now that that color is everywhere on top, kind of like the way that looks, I might have to add some orange as it's in a dry, a little lighter. So go back in with a little orange. No, just a little bit of blue to the orange. Don't drop some of that in and the blue turns the orange Almost a little bit of a hint of brown as well. Makes a nice, rich color. Okay. And so now what I want to do to kind of make it a little more realistic. I mean, we have a beautiful colors here is I want to add a dark border, so I'll take some of the black and mix it in with some brown. And as the pumpkin cooks the pumpkin pie, the edges closest to the cross will turn nice rich brown. So I'm just gonna try and drop some color in right on the edge, just a little bit. And with the paint being wet on the wet paper, it'll move it around and create a nice edge. And then just a title in all handsome, darker spots on the center of the pie. Um, as well. So here we have the edge is done. I had a few little dark cook spots, center of pie, just like I'm actually homemade pie would look, don't go back and drop in some more of that rich orange and blue color. Here we go. Then we'll let this dry and we'll work on our crust. I think the color variations make it look very realistic, and it's nice, rich fall colors as well. Just put a little bit more gold on this side. I was dropping a teeny bit more. We'll let this dry will come back and work on our crust in our Rym Now that our pie the custard has dried we're gonna work on the outer edge The pie tin So I'll take my second The largest size brush that I'm using Kind of a medium brush And I'm gonna paint just a little glaze of water Clear water So I want my pie tin to be like an old ceramic color Um, so it's gonna be a green, very light, greenish beige with some brown undertones I'm just gonna drop in the color It's very light and I just want a little hint of color. Once I have the color all down the first layer, I'll go in and drop Just a little bit of the green A little bit of the Clearwater and a little bit of the gold color just to get a little variation right along our pie crust. Uh, pipe Iten, we're also gonna go in here. We'll make that color a little darker in a moment. Okay, so you know that we have that taken even smaller brush would have dropped some Clearwater various spots just to move the pigment around slightly, give a very natural look, dropping a little bit of the green here and there, all the way around the edge of AARP Iten. And then I'm going with just a little bit of the brown just on the outer edge and let that bleedin. And now I would do the same thing right in the center here where the fightin meets the crust just on those in dense spots just to create a shadow case. It's looking good, and now I'm gonna take that brown that same brown. I'm very carefully with a very small brush and just outlined the other side of the 10th. It's bleeding a little into the crust, and that's into the tin, and that's OK. It's creating like a shadow. We're gonna let that dry and we'll come back and finish this pie by me doing the crust. So now our pumpkin pie is dry. We're gonna work on adding a nice golden crust to this, take a small brush and try and makes the nice golden crust. What we want to do is have the crust be we're not yellow, but a nice, rich pastry color, and then we'll drop in some darker color to give the browning effect of the crust. Use this brush paint Clearwater right around where the crust is noble and her pastry color on our pastry color. And it's good, dry, lighter, and they will create some shadow and some nice brown parts on the crust. Here is the crust. They were to go back with our very tiny brush, a dark color. Mix it in with the pastry color just a little bit. Well, just outline the edge and it will run right in lead right in. It's makes the crust pop a little bit, I think, you know, and just a little bit of some brown spots on the inside of the crust. Not in a straight line, but just in a dabbing motion. Don't go back in with the pastry color. Just add some spots of pastry. There you have our pumpkin pie 4. Lesson #2 Slice of Pie: for a second drawing. We have a full slice of pie, complete with a little dollop of whipped cream. So in order to achieve those colors we're gonna use blue is a shadow highlight bluish gray on the whipped cream, and then we're gonna paint the actual custard and crust on the pie. To do that, we're gonna leave a space of white in between the bottom and the top layer of custard. Just Teoh indicate the three dimension of the pie. We'll start with clear water and we'll start with the actual crust actual custard, a front view. So I'm just gonna paint Clearwater train. Absorb that little drop by dripped. Go back. Make sure there's lots of clear water here, and I'll drop in light colors. Here. I'll start with the golden. I'm just bringing the pigment right to the edge of the line that I drew Okay, No, I have my base color done while it's still wet. I'll drop in some actual colors here to take the golden and mix it with a little bit of brown just to get a more of a caramel color and add a little bit of orange as well. And I'll just drop this in. Some spots go right on the edge as well. The custard, when it bakes, isn't uniform. It's kind of string. He's got the pumpkin and it's got spices mixed in. So we're trying to create that dimension that you see in a riel slice of pie. Don't go back and a little more golden on top of the color just to even it out. Work on my edge a little, Okay, Happy with the way that looks While that is drying, I'm gonna work on my top layer where the whipped cream goes But I'm not gonna work on the whipped cream just yet, So I had some clear water just to the top of the custard, making sure to leave a little bit of an edge between where the custard meets the crust and the custard needs the bottom layer here that we just painted. So once I have no could start dropping in some color, and I wanted to be just a little bit darker around the base of the whipped cream, as if the whipped cream is casting a shadow. So I'm gonna go in there first with the kind of orange color just around the base. And then I'll go in there with my gold. If I go in there with a light, um, base of gold, then I can drop in more color after I find exactly where I want the pain to be the pigment to be. And it won't run into the next layer that we already put down. So here have a nice layer of gold. So tidy it up right in this corner. Make it a little uneven, an organic as if the crust was the pie. Custard was pulling away from the crust. And then I'll go back in with some real colors. We'll start at the whipped cream to create my shadow, and then I'll just drop in a little bit more pigment. I want the outer part to have a little more color apart near the crust. Be a little more darker than a center of the pie. Okay, that looks nice. Well, let that Dr will come back and work on the whipped cream and the crust once our custard is all dry. So the custody on our pumpkin slices all dry. So now we're gonna work on the crust and the whipped cream. We'll start with the crust. Well, what we need to mix up a nice pastry color so I'll make some brown, a little bit of blue and a little bit of darker brown. That'll makes a little bit of a golden brown with the brown and a little bit of water to make. A light color can start with the top of the pastry here, and we want to make it a dark, the darkest part We want to be near where the custard is and gets later as it gets away from the custard that will make the very top edges brown. So first I do my clear glaze, and then I'll go back in and and some very light golden brown pastry color. Give that a moment to dry, and I'll work on adding that golden brown for the bottom crust with the bottom crust. We want the very bottom to be the darkest part, so we'll start with that golden layer first and again, keeping little distance a little clear white line between the crust and the custard. Then I'll go in with very small brush in my darker color. Just let it bleed and then I'll go back with my small brush and my golden pastry color Form a little radiant. Don't continue that all the way up the crust. Go back with some water down. Pastry color just around the edges. The mental go in with my very tiny brushing my doctor Brown, just to finish the outline. What the color bleed? A little same thing right here, right next to the custard. And now I'm gonna go back in with that brown we next and just put in little splotches right by the crust. Carry it up a little bit and I'll just bring in a layer of it to the top is, well, they don't go back with some water down pastry. Just move the pigment around. And here I want to make a nice, dark dark line between the crust and the cake, the cake, the pie. So I'm just dabbing a little bit of darkness ever so slightly, and I'll do the same up top just a little bit here and there. Go back with a little bit of the brown, added near the darkness, and then I'll go back with a little bit of the pastry color and add that in. Okay, now we'll work on the whipped cream, so I'm just gonna outline with clear water instead of outlining the entire whipped cream. I'm just gonna give a nice, thick outline to the perimeter just with clear wash. And then I'm gonna go in there with my super thin brush and a very light blue that I mixed with a little bit of, um, black. Just to give it a darker hue. More like a gray. We're just gonna go in and create shadows for the whipped cream outline and shadows. We'll start with the outline, and they will make the little layers with pillows of layers. We'll go back in a very little bit of color on the brush, blended out, feather it out a little, just pull it away from the edge and then over here, since we have a big white space will go in with a little color, make 22 crooked lines. Same thing up here. So Syria, here we have a variation. We have a very light blue, and then the darker blue that we use for the outline. We're gonna go in with a very light blue again and try and feather out the outlines just slightly, so it's just not quite so harsh. And there we have our pumpkin pie with a dollop of whipped cream. 5. Lesson #3 Pumpkin Sugar Cookie: So here we have a cookie shaped like a pumpkin, a sugar cookie with colored frosting to resemble a pumpkin. There's usually no real pumpkin in this cookie, but it resembles a pumpkin, and it's very cute. Kids love it. You'll see these at bakeries. First thing we'll do is we'll actually color in the orange frosting part of the pumpkin. I'll do this by coat covering each section in with just some Clearwater to make that glaze . And I want to make sure I leave a space between each section and I'm gonna leave that white . So here each section is wet with clear glaze clean water glaze. And now I'm gonna make the pumpkin color. We want this color to be almost pink, um, and soft and yummy looking. So I'm using like, a peach color, and I'll mix in some orange with this and then a little golden. But I'm mixed. Another one has a little bit more orange as well, so I'll start with the peach one gotta paint inside each section with the peach, starting with the outer section because I'm right handed. I'm starting with the outer section on the left and I'll work my way across, and this will prevent me from dragging my hand through the section I've already painted. So here we have the first layer of the nice yummy peach. And I left a purposely left a spot That was a highlight where I didn't It's so clear water , but I didn't put any pigment. And now I'm just gonna add a little bit of the richer orange as an outline and let that lead in to that first color a little more than a peach color here where it really blended. And now I'm gonna go and do each section here we have the body of the pumpkin Done. I'm gonna work on the stem here, being very careful not to touch. Make the pigment touch the actual pumpkin itself. So I'm gonna work with a smaller brush, and I'm to do like a brown stem. - Okay , so here I have my stamp in my pumpkin part, and I'm gonna do the outline of the sugar cookie. After this layer dries to finish our cookie, we just have to make the actual sugar cookie pastry. We'll start with using our small brush in the light pastry color, and we'll just make an outline. We'll start. Will do about 1/3 of this half of the cookie with the outline with the color and because it's sugar cookie, it's gonna be pale. We wanted to be pale, so I'll take my brush, rinse it off and just with some water, I'll pull in some of that line. We just pulled it down. We put down and I'll pull it not quite up to the frosting part of the pumpkin that we made , but just enough to blend out the line we set down. So there we have a border. It's just a slight edge, and we have the water. I do this because we already put the pigment here. I don't want to run my cookie pastry paint color into the pumpkin, so I put the paint down and then I try and bleed it out. Do it again, and I'm working with only a portion of the cookie so that the paint doesn't dry. I can still move the pigment around. I'm gonna go back with me clear water and believe that color. So when you make sugar cookies, the edges get brown. Before long before the center of the cookie. If I put a little too much pigment, I take a clean brush and absorb it. - So here we have the cookie. Um, I would like to do another layer with a very small brush, just so I have a little firmer edge on this cookie. Still, take my thin this brush and just create that outline again. It might run if it was still a wet part of the cookie. That's okay. And if it runs, too much, will pick it up, Will pick up the color with a brush. So now I just make a little bit of a gray shadow. Very light, you know, mixing a teeny bit of blue. I'm just gonna outline a cookie, but clean brush. Just go around the edge. Feather that out slightly. There. We have a pumpkin cookie. 6. Lesson #4 Pumpkin Roll: here we have our pumpkin role. Have the outline traced on the pack paper. And then I drew the role in this is gonna be a fun one to do because we're gonna have a lot of negative space with the white frosting and some of the white on top of the actual role itself that we're gonna try and leave white. We're not using for skit, and we're not gonna used wash. Although you're welcome to try that as well. Those techniques. The first thing we do for our role is I'm gonna use the stressed by painting the larger part to do a layer of clear wash. And because the role is usually served with a sprinkling of powdered sugar, the top is usually much later than the bottom. So we'll start in the bottom just by dropping in some color. Gonna mix up some nice rich brown in a red brown. A swell because I want that to look a little more realistic and less bright only had just a little bit of blue. It's a little too much blue turn grey, So add a little more brown. That's much better. And now for this. So mixing a little light makes it a little gold. Okay, we'll start by just dropping in color here and there. I'm not trying to create a solid color. Pumpkin rolls are a, um, like almost a sponge cake. And so they're very airy, very light. The only time to do a solid line is just to do the outline. And then, other than that, I'll just drop in some color, trying to be a little heavier on the bottom, then on the top. So here's my orange, my golden brown, and then I'll dropping some darker brown. And if this isn't blending enough down here, the pigment seems to be blending really nicely up top. But not enough on the bottom, which meant I didn't lead it enough. I will just add a little spray of water. Get that pigment moving first. I'll do up here, take my spray cover at the top. Let's go back in here and pick up any pigment that blew out with the spray. I'll take my smaller brush and I'll go back in a little bit of orange. Drop some of that in here is well, we want to give it a nice, rich looking um, color blend. Okay. What's blending out quite nicely. Just gonna go up here in outline top of my pumpkin role and in a very thin line top here. So now I want to blend this color out. And instead of using the spray, just got a dab, some water move that color around, makes me soft edges. And then down here, I want to add some darker brown, um, creating almost a shadow effect. I'll do the same at this corner and just a few spots up. Top further distance between them. Do the same thing here again. Adding a little bit more color. Okay, so now it's getting just a little bit of darkness. Make that brown a little darker. Just add a few drops again, keeping them closer together on the bottom and for the least further spaced on the top. And now we're gonna work on the pumpkin role part that we want this section here to be left white. So I'm gonna be very careful just to work on this as our cake layer. Get my bigger brush, Just paint clear glaze right on the cake layer. And then the same procedure we used for the outer role. We're just gonna drop in color again to trying to keep the darkness kind of on the bottom, trying to keep a little bit of space between, um, the pumpkin role in this section of pumpkin role here. Just a little white layer in between just a little border. Because this color is so light, I can just add full water glaze and they will drop in some of that. Richard Brown. You can start with that. We'll just drop some of this here again. We want to go for that model look, - and now we're gonna add some orange color to tie it all in, picking up some of the orange and the brown to remain part of the role. And then we'll and some of her dark color okay, and I just a little bit of brown, and then we'll let this dry and then we'll come back and have the feeling another pumpkin rule has dried the face. That cross cut section, as well as the entire piece, will work on creating the image of butter cream or whipped cream inside the role. And we'll do a little shadow, so I'll take a small brush and a little bit of blue, very light blue. It will just outline the edge. We'll do a little bit at a time, and then I'll go back with some clear water. Just pull the color out a little bit, creates just a little shadow. Just toe hint to let you know some things in there, you know, dab a few spots, very light colored blue here and there. And then we'll just create our shadow. So we use a light gray. It's just some black, a lot of water. We just want a light shadow and a little blue and our shadow. We're gonna just do right along the base in this spot here. So I'll go slowly, pulling the color away from the role and down. And then just add a little darker color closer to the role, going with my little or brush. So have a little more control and add some darkness closer to the role. Here we go. Pumpkin role 7. Lesson #5 Pumpkin Spice Latte: for a pumpkin spice latte. We have here a cinnamon stick that will use a nice dark color for and will have the coffee on the top of the mug as well, as well as the phone, which will be white. In contrast, so have a white foam, the White Cup, the dark stick and in the shadow. So the first thing we'll do is we'll work on that sentiment stick, paint the whole thing with a water glaze, and then I'm gonna drop in some nice cinnamon color, so that would be a lot of brown. I'm just gonna create that cinnamon, and the cinnamon color has a little bit of red in it as well. Well, first, put the brown base and then we'll add There are color okay, when they will drop you in some cinnamon color and a little more brown. Here's where I like to add a little bit of a golden color to make the brown in the cinnamon really pop to get blends nicely with the orange color. Okay, well, look, that cinnamon stick dry and we'll start working on the top of the coffee here. So to make the coffee, let's start Let's mix our color first, I want a nice rich brown so we'll mix brown with some blue and we're gonna get try and get a lot of variation. So it's not gonna be a US one solid color brown. I use my brush paint a clear glaze on where I want to the coffee to go. Okay, After I have that clear glaze drop in some of this brown working on the edge first to create a nice edge up against the coffee cup. Ultimately, that's the darkest part we want. Okay, so there we have our first layer for the coffee, and I'm gonna do is just take the brown and just drop it in some spots and let it run bleeding to the existing wet coffee just to get some variation and a teeny bit of dark color. Just a pump. Okay, well, let that dry, and we'll come back and work on a coffee cup. Now there are coffee and our cinnamon stick have dried, will work on our mug and our shading my big brush and lots of clear water and go over the face of the mug here, facing us because it's white and I want to create the illusion that it's more than just plain wait I'm gonna add some blue and some purple as shadows I'm also gonna go over the bottom of the dish leaving a space between the dish and where the mug meats and a little bit of space between the handle on the cinnamon stick and the dish now mix some colors. I want very light blue makes a little bit of orange in with that and a little bit of purple Lambeau makes a little green and with that just a little bit There we go. Now I'm gonna take my smaller brush, We'll start with the blue and I'm just gonna go along the edge and introduce a little bit of color and we'll do the same thing on this edge and the base. Now I'm just gonna pull some color out Nice, big, thick strokes. And when I pull it out, I'm not pulling in a straight line but a rounded line. So I'm following the shape of the top of the cup or the shape of the bottom of the cup. I'm just pulling a slight bit of color away from the edge and Then I'm gonna come up top and make a little bit more of an edge, my brush, and do the full outline on the dry part. So this is a wet on dry, and then I'm gonna go to the dish, do my outline against a leaving a little gap between the dish and the mug. It's gonna pull it in very little color, just a hint of color and then over here because I don't want these lines, but it takes some clear water and just blend them out so it creates a little bit of a shadow just along the edge free. Okay, so I'm gonna take a little paper talent to stab over here right behind the cinnamon stick. It's great. Now I'm gonna add a little more of that purple again. I'm just gonna kind of do a little outline and then just pull a little bit of it in blending the colors just to create a shadow. I do this so that the shadow isn't isn't gray. It has a little bit of color to it, but it's kind of a neutral. You will do the same thing with dish this in a few spots creating a little darker shadow and then blending the milk and you could go back in now a little more blue if you feel it. The purple became a little too dominant. So now we'll work a little bit on. I'd like to work on the handle in a moment, But first I'd like to work on that cinnamon stick, making that a little more realistic. So I'm gonna take a darker color on the cinnamon stick is actually a curled piece of bark. So I'm just getting outline the curl here. I'm here and it kind of forms a folded line down the center. Just a very basic outline. Very light. Don't line. That's lately. So there it looks a little bit more like piece of cinnamon. And now I'm gonna add a few little dark spots. Just like to reflect a real piece of cinnamon. How it has some color variations like here. Even I just a little red here and there. Here we go. Then I will work on that handle. So the same thing with the handle when we create shadows in the handle, um, the shadows would be wherever the light can't get through. So we'll use our blue. We did a clear wash, and I'm just going to outline a little bit around them. Handle with the blue, move that pigment around, let that drive for a moment and then add a little bit of purple pulling that in a little bit of blue. Here we go. And now let's add some shadow with shadow to be underneath the handle on the dish and underneath the mug and a little bit of the cinnamon, and then we're gonna add just a teeny little bit of shadow along the edge of the plate. Then this will be a great color. The late great. We can always go back in and add a little more darkness to it when we want one of the shadow underneath the mug. Let's add a little bit of shadow underneath the cup. The dish of the cup. I'm gonna go back in with my smaller brush just slightly darker color and just put a darker color right up against the the mug here and the sadistic There's our pumpkin spice latte 8. Bonus Class! Adorable Pumpkin Pie: for a bonus. Listen, we have a cute piece of pumpkin pie, so we're trying to go for slightly realistic, but more just cute. What we do is we to do the colors. So, pumpkin pie, we're gonna go with an orange instead of trying to get a rich brown, we're gonna kind of use an orange. We're gonna use a fund dollop of whipped cream on top and then a cute little face. This is a quick one. I'll paint the body of the pumpkin pie with clear water and then I'll drop in some of the orange. And I also do that to the top, not to the crust and not to the cream. So here I have Ah, almost a carrot color. It's kind of a fun, bright color. It's a nice color, and I'm using This is the custard of the pumpkin pie. This time, instead of the bright, rich color that we had before to make it cute, we don't do We try and emphasize rounded shapes and very few straight marks, sharp edges. So here's the body of the pie. Gonna add just dropping a little bit of the golden color just cause it's a fun color, the top of the pie again, leaving a little white layer between the top of the pie and the custard. Even though they're connected, we're gonna try and just hint at the connection because it's a smaller area. I'm gonna use a smaller brush to drop in the orange color. And I'm gonna try and primarily do that underneath the with cream, as in the shadow again, we don't have to be accurate. We're just looking for attractive looking lips. Attractive looking, um, piece. So we want nice colors. Nice lines. - Okay , here we go. We have a nice little blend as well. I'm gonna put just a little bit of the dark color right up against where the crust and the custard meat and try and get that to blend out a little bit. Then we'll work on the crust. Okay. With the crest, we want a nice brown color again. I'm gonna use my clear glaze. Try and create a little space between the custard and the crust as well. Then I'll drop in my brown right now. Just outline it for the top of the crust. Here. I made the outlines kind of reminiscent of heart shapes just because it's a cute hi. And we want to evoke nice feelings. Happy images. Okay. And now I'm just gonna take some of that brown and pull each one of these layers down, leaving highlights as well. Okay, so we have our crust, we have our custard. Now we're gonna work on her lip cream. So we'll do that in the same procedure before we'll take our small brush. Not our ultra small brush with our small brush and a little bit of pale blue. And we'll just create an outline. I'll start right here with these lines, bring them up again. Work on night making nice belt billowy shapes here to have this rosette of whipped cream, you know, outlined the bottom and then I'll go in with an even lighter color. Creates a second layer on one side. So there's are whipped cream now and a little bit of a shadow. We take our brown, the mint mimic the shape of the top of the crust, and that's it. When this is dry, will come back and make the face to finish off our adorable pumpkin. We're just gonna add a little face. So we'll add eyes, a mouth and cheeks. Start with the eyes. Just take a black outlined to simple circles Fill them in And I just like to add a few little eyelashes. Try and get the eyes the same sides if you can have a cute little mills. Okay. I want to add a little too little cheeks. I'm just gonna add too little pink dots. That one kind of spread a little too much. Go back. Prepare that. And when the eyes dry, this is when I would use my gel pen to make little highlights. 9. Class Wrap Up & Project: So here are the results of all of our lessons.
