BEGINNER CLASS LESSON



I could hear some sighs while my 2 beginners worked on this one.  We finished everything but the 2 foreground pilings when they left last Tuesday.  I told them they could finish at home, leaving the netting to do in class.  Here is what I have so far.  Some more tweaks of the closest piling and upright post to do and then the netting (which I'm going to let everyone do with watercolor pencil so all those lines don't seem so overwhelming).

I'll have a new student coming next Tuesday, too so a total of 3 beginners to help along in their watercolor journey :)

Good luck with your beginner class. I bet it is as much fun for you as it is for them! I love the color of the water and the orangy pilings. Looking forward to the netting.

Oh Rhonda. I'd be thinking like your students... this one looks tricky to me too... ;-) Loving the colours, looking forward to seeing it finished. Great little kitten sketches earlier too. Take care...

Thanks so much, Renate, Sherry, Debbie, and Carol :) I am enjoying the class and also learning.

Laura, I think it is a bit tricky but I told them they have the skills to do it - not sure they believed me! ha ha
