Tonight we learned about reflections and how to paint them in water. Here's what I painted and what the rest of our group did. One of the ladies got kind of upset tonight, didn't finish her painting and wouldn't put it up with the rest of us. I don't understand why she's so hard on herself. It's only lesson 4 of a BEGINNER class. Nobody expects perfection or the next big masterpiece. We are all learning and practicing. I wonder if she should consider another medium, because watercolor is not something you can really control at first.
Mine is on the wood board. Everybody else purchases gator board which you can staple to. I need to get a piece because I can't staple my paper down like I'm supposed to. I like the ones where the reflection of mountain is darker. My reflected mountain kind of disappears. I notice that I tend to use more water than needed and often my picture is lighter than the others. Note to self: Use LESS water!
