Weekend Watercolor Workshop

This past weekend I took a super fun workshop at Glen Echo and learned my basics in watercolor. I haven’t taken a class in it since a short workshop about 8 years ago at the community college my Mom taught at. So we started with veggies and fruits, and moved on to any outdoor scene we wanted to paint. I enjoyed painting the peppers the most I think, it’s amazing how many colors you see when you’re really looking.

This class made me take a step back and really consider my color more before applying them, since watercolors are not the most forgiving. I painted all weekend just using the three primary colors and mixed every other color myself. 

Posted in the order I painted them in:
