I did another sepia study in class, showing the students how to let the paint flow and use more water - this is something they both need to practice since they tend to paint dry, not incorporating the beauty of watercolor in their works. I think it just stems from fear = they are afraid they will lose control if they don't paint with a lot of pigment and a little water - but that's the fun of watercolor! ha ha Of course, I act like I've always known and done this - and I haven't!! Something we all needed to learn as we learned more about watercolor, I think.
Here is another one I did, using cool colors. I thought about what colors I wanted first and still tried to paint it as loosely and fresh as the sepia one.
I'll do another in warm colors, just for fun and to get more practice. But I won't do the warm one until next class so I can show the students how going back to colors should be easier, after the Notan and sepia studies.
