Here are my Week 2: Summer paintings!

"Summer Road Trip" one was actually my very first 30 day challenge painting. I didn't use 100% cotton paper and I also used a brush from a local dollar store (it was $1.25 for a pack of 5!). Since then, I worked on 7 days of the spring session and bought 100% cotton paper as well as still inexpensive but better quality brushes. 

I can definitely see improvement in my watercolor painting techniques!

Thank you so much for this fun class! I can't wait to get started on the fall sessions!

If you see ways I could improve my paintings, please let me know in the comments : )

Happy painting everyone!

I didn't like how the upper cloud turned out so I went back after the sky was dried... I can clearly see a watermark outline... a lesson learned!

I want to learn to make the skies' color change more gradually...

Week 1: Spring

I am very new to Skillshare. I joined just a few days ago. This project's been really fun and relaxing! I haven't been painting with watercolours like this since high school! (that's almost 20 years!) It's a great challenge, especially for beginners.

I was too excited to get started and used my children's art supplies like their brushes from a Dollar Store. I plan to buy better-quality materials once I get used to this medium.

There were challenges like the paper drying too quickly! 

I look forward to joining more classes from the same teacher.

If you see ways I could improve, please let me know!

Happy painting : )
