The tulips continue- with friends…

Not complete. But still… Lovely.

We started with drawing. Working toward a good composition that could be translated into watercolour painting.

Three tones… Plus pattern.

The drawings were really engaging and most people worked on longer than I expected. Starting with a linear composition and adding three tones of shading. Looking for areas of close subtle tones and also counterchange. Light against dark to dark against light drama and contrast.

Then painting in monochrome.

It was a really enjoyable lesson. The most difficult part, translating the sketches to the watercolour paper was achieved well in most cases.

The progress quite visible. Stiil maintaining good flat and graduated washes. Wet in wet. All that as well as more complex subjects and composition. They did well. (And had a good time.)
