Tuesday Watercolour Class – Week One!

Still Life

Happy New Year! The Tuesday watercolour painters were back in action yesterday. My New Year’s Resolution was to review a few basics. The focus of the two classes was value and we took a very traditional approach to our subject.

I mixed Cobalt Blue and Burnt Sienna together to make a cool gray. Working from light to dark, I developed the values. I left paper white for the areas of direct light. The washes were allowed to dry before I applied the local colour.

I asked the students to study the values carefully and to take their time. Not all completed the colour stage of the painting but they did a great job of observation. All in all, a solid start to our new term.
