Watercolor Monstera Leaf

Watercolor Monstera Leaf - student project

This one had a lot of experimenting.  First time trying out my handmade watercolors, new brush set, and new paper.  Had some issues with the paint not working correctly.  Probably a combo of too much honey in the mixture for the watercolors and too much sizing on the cheaper paper.  The brushes worked well at least.  And the paints were mulled again adding more pigment, so I will hopefully be ready to paint the next plants.  But I must say, I did learn a lot with this project.  Thanks Cat for the great class and giving me an excuse to finally try out my paints!
