I had a nice long weekend with friends in Palm Springs and took a watercolor kit to a wonderful spot, Indian Canyons. It’s just so much easier to travel with, than oils. I need a lot more experience with this medium to paint something I’ll be happy with. I think I’ll take a watercolor workshop. If you know if free resources on YouTube, blogs, or elsewhere-or can recommend an instructor–let me know. Some things I’m struggling with: layers, and how the paint interacts and changes color as you layer; Values, i seem to have much less control of value than oil. It makes sense that the medium (since it’s transparent) has less of a value range, but it’s still something I’m struggling with.
Hope you enjoy this so-so result!
