Please upload you practice rounds as well as your final project. 


Upload these assignments in the following order. You don't need to upload them all at once. A picture or scanned image of your paintings will do.

Project Description

Paint two versions of the same drawing! The frist one will be in a translucent medium (preferably watercolors) and the second version will be in an opaque medium (gouache or acrylics will do)

I strongly recommend doing the warm up activities before creating your final project, going through the process is half the fun!
