Basics continued. With tulips…

Watercolour terms such as Wet in wet, wax resist, transparent, Opaque or body colour, make the language that is specific to its subject – and can sound pretentious and rather inpenetrable. But like all language that is specific – it is actualy pure and discriptive and really essential to describe the activity, if you have the interest.

Flat and graduated washes. Wet in wet, soft edge and hard edge.

Over the last two weeks we have covered these basic watercolour techniques and this week we pulled them together with the help of some cheerfully coloured tulips.

Bloomin marvellous, ( that’s my opinion not a technical term)

Good practice, lots of clean water. Fresh unfussy colours.

Some managed also to translate reality to something more delightfully fansiful.

All three classes this week responded well to the brief.

Some were more personal.
Some literal.
Some delicate.
Or dynamic.

My challenge is to maintain and even raise the level next week.
