This is my pre-workshop sample.
The girls were all very receptive to trying this new medium. We watched a little of Karlyn Holman's DVD, and used her techniques to add collaged Thai papers and sanded watercolor stencils.
I have done a similar painting four times now, and each one looks different. Here is the one I did yesterday at the meeting.
I was proud of the girls! Here is Roberta's painting.
Everyone had their own take on the brightness and values of the colors. It was fun, and we may have a few new fans of watercolors in the group.
While we were eating lunch, the mailman rang the doorbell. A package from Cheap Joe's Art Stuff arrived with some fun art supplies. My husband and I are going on a fabulous trip to Hawaii in just ten days. This will be an early celebration of our fortieth anniversary. I bought a watercolor travel journal with Arches paper.
