A great watercolor class last night with two eager students ready to get painting!

This demo was about the re-introduction of the 4 main variables (thank you Tom Hoffmann): color, value, wetness and compostion.

I call this the ‘shopping list’ when approaching a watercolor.

My palate was fairly simple; limiting to 3-4 color choices,  though I ‘threw in’ a spark of turquoise at the final moments. I am loading the brush with more color and paint.

more about edges, soon.
