Very fun class! I'm eager to practice the blending skills I've learned in this class on my own projects. I spent way too much time mixing colors and feeling anxious that I wasn't able to duplicate the teacher's color mixes but I started to enjoy the mixing process by the time I got to the succulent painting. In looking these over now, I realize I have to work on varying the values and painting with less pigment and more water.
This hibiscus painting was blah -- not enough value variation -- so I added highlights with a white gel pen.
I tried it again and it was a little better except for the paint pooling in the two front petals.
