Thank you so much for this class. I'm relatively new to watercolor painting and feel that there's so much to learn, so to be actually able to pull off a painting that resembles feathers is a huge testament to your teaching skills!
I have a pretty limited set of supplies, so was working with those. I loved the colour palette exercise because the paints look so different on paper than in the cakes. Here's my first try but find it a bit off from my preferences - too much yellow and not enough teal/green.
I did use these colours to paint a couple of moons. Need to invest in some gold paint and white gauche though to get some of the beautiful effects you did in your paintings. Love the salt tip! I didn't have sea salt on hand but even with regular table salt I got some neat effects.
Finally, here are my two feathers. I'm so proud of them actually - like I said, I'm quite new to this medium and just learning about how the paints interact and layer is really exciting. The larger one I did first and think it needs more flex (a curvier shape). I actually really like the smaller one. I think they'd both benefit from the white gauche to thin them out a bit as you mentioned.
