Watercolor exercise

Watercolor exercise - student project

I found this exercise very challenging but enjoyed seeing how your techniques work. I think that my paper absorbed the water much more quickly than your paper did--or I was painting too slowly! This caused the blending to be less fluid than in the example, and then, I *overwet* the paper in the bottom which really looked bad until I had the inspiration to lighten it with some white paint under the car. Also, of course, my sketch was too small so I ended up doing another set of buildings on the right, which doesn't pull the eye the same way that the example does but at least gave me more practice with the distance & shading! It was fun to experiment! Thank you again.
