Getting Started with the Dropped Color Technique

I'm keeping a log of my project progress here (most recent first)! I painted these latest two on the 16th, but I just got around to uploading photos today (3/30).

Starting my first dropped color bouquet


My paper was pretty wet, so I waited a long time for this to dry, but I'll be going at this one again soon. Stay tuned!

Painting my first dropped color roses


I took a photo part-way through, and another after adding some details. I'm not a big fan of the big red one (that was my first rose), but in general I'm pretty happy with my first go at watercolor painting!

Getting started with my rose sketches!


I just bought my watercolor supplies today. I haven't painted in years, and have zero experience with watercolor painting (unless you count when I was 5), so I'm really excited to give this a try. Wish me luck!
