Watercolor Wreaths

After watching the videos I wanted to see if I could apply the techniques to other types of wreaths.

The first one I painted was a lavender wreath. I added a quote about dreams since lavender is supposed to be a calming and relaxing herb.

The second wreath is an experiment with a muted color palette so I chose an olive wreath. I added yellow ochre and burnt sienna to diluted olive green to get the different leaf colors. Rather than use black for the olives I mixed indigo, burnt umber, and a touch of violet to get the color I wanted.

This one I painted using watercolor pencil on watercolor card stock. I find the watercolor pencil doesn't require as much water which keeps this type of paper from warping. The lettering was done with a waterproof pen.

This was a really fun class. Thank you for sharing your techniques with us Caitlin!
