Warming up; looking for light, wet on wet, value and contrast.
Most importantly, no judgement calls; getting warmer.
And paints at the ready in studio, always.
Just a quick minute, a brush into water, into paint, onto paper; that’s all it takes.
A warm up for sure; more where that came from.
How about a bit of red today; break from yesterday.
and then there’s tomorrow.
You are more ready than you think; really.

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.
