Again, it's all about pure color. Working while the area is wet wet wet so you don't get much and working with a limited palette, whatever colors you choose.
She started working on the flowers rising up from the water, using the same colors and working the same way to get brighter color or more muted color, working her warms and cools.
In the studio, Carol would have waited for each wash to dry before going back to the painting and doing more. Why? In order to check the values as they are drying to make sure they don't need to be darker or lighter before the paper is dry and it's too late. In the workshop, with limited time, she used a hairdryer.
Like I said, I didn't get a photo of the finished piece - maybe by this time I was working on my own painting - but I bet Carol or Sandy will share it on their blogs.
Tomorrow I will share some of the exercises and work I did in the workshop and some quotes from Carol that I love.
Again, if you can get your watercolor society or painting group or teacher to bring Carol for a 3-day workshop, you will be very pleased!
Before I met her and saw her work, I was just a wannabe Carolette but it's official now: I'm a Carolette for Life :)
