Apples, #exploringwc

These apples rounded out the last lesson in the #exploringwc class I took a while ago.

This online class was fun practice, and I thoroughly enjoyed the feeling of community of the other class members as well as hearing the thought processes of the instructor as she painted.  There was even a bonus lesson!

Pear #exploringwc

A pear was the second subject of the online class I took recently.

I painted it twice because I wanted to get it just right, and watching the colors blend together on the paper sometimes seems so magical.

Oranges #exploringwc

I recently participated in another excellent online watercolor class taught by Sandy Allnock.  The classes actually started in November and I did a couple of the lessons, but then I had to take a break during the busy holiday season.   I already knew the basics but thought it would be fun to paint along and listen to her thought process as she painted, and her suggestions are always helpful.  It was great practice and I did learn quite a bit along the way.  The first lesson was in painting oranges so here they are.

Each lesson entails painting different types of fruit, and these will look very nice framed and hung on our freshly painted kitchen walls.  It’s always a good feeling to freshen up things around the house during the long winter months.
