Project Description

You have several options for a project! Do one of the exercises or do all if you're an over-achiever like me!

Here are your options for your project post:

  • Paper experimentation | Optional finishing touch: birthday cake
  • Circle Tree Ratio Exercise 
  • My Color Options Pineapple
  • Floral Color Mixing | Optional finishing touch: vase & card design
  • Forest Value Study
  • Wood Grain Crayon Resist
  • Monogram or Icon Masking Fluid Resist

But here is the important part: tell us what you've learned. 

Whether you're a newbie, in the dubious emergent status or well into intermediate, post your findings along your watercolor story journey here.
