We started with the lightest values, a yellow and a pink. Then we added a midrange blue, and a middle purple for the far shoreline and reflection.
Finally we put in some midrange earth/greens for the foreground.
Next week we will finish this picture by adding the darker values.
We are also starting a new one using your personal photos.
Please bring one in next week. This is your chance to paint something you really enjoy doing.
We will talk about values and color value before we start the second picture.
Due to the drying factor, we will be working on both of these at the same time.
I hope you could see the wonderful transparency of watercolor when you worked with glazes. For next week you may either use glazing or a more spontaneous approach or a combination of both of these.
