Yellow Barns - Experimental Farm, Ottawa

I can see a couple of areas I could have worked differently, but this paper feels like it's had enough.  I will try this one again.

Yellow Barn - Experimental Farm, Ottawa

Same view as previous exercise 'Blue Farm'.  Working with yellow forces me to use one of my least favourite colours!

Watercolour.  8"x12"

First Exercise - Watercolour Class Week 2

Exercise #1 - Monochromatic, 4 washes with a 5th layer for the darkest details.  I need to work on flat washes, gradient washes and working in one direction.  It was awesome to see how lovely everyones' example turned out, all blue and yet all different.  The image was provided by the instructor.

Begin at the Beginning.

Have started a watercolour class in the city.  Starting from the beginning is always good!  working from a photo I took at the Experimental farm last summer; a monotone study. 7"x4"
