Simply Watercoloring Day 2

By | 07/17/2018

My watercoloring class homework for day 2 will be posting before the day 1 homework…what can I say?!  I couldn’t resist doing the day 2 assignments first!

I was expecting that we would be stamping things and learning to watercolor them.  Instead I discovered that we are sketching things and watercoloring them.  Huh!  Not what I was expecting, but darn I’m having fun trying the stuff.

Here are my assignments for today:

  1. A quirky bird ‎Okay…so my balloons aren’t shaped well, but it wasn’t as bad as I expected it to be!  I wasn’t quite sure what the effect of the watercolor mixing for the bird I was supposed to be achieving, so I just added colors and moved on.
  2. Card 2 is 4 cute critters. I did not make this one into a card yet, so it is a little warped from the water. ‎In case you can’t tell: dog, fox, cat, tiger…just sayin’!  Considering that I did that free hand…not terrible.  My fox needs a little work, but all in all I’m happy with my first attempt at these and I will try some critters of my own selection next.
  3. This is supposed to be a bear…it’s more like an egg shaped bear.  I did not quite master the shape.  He’s cute anyway. ‎4. This was an extra challenge card of a super quirky cat… ‎For my first attempt at sketching and watercoloring my own sketches…I’m happy with these.

I actually can’t wait until tomorrows lesson!  I still have 3 cards to make from lesson 1, but these critters were to cute to resist making today!

I’m taking this class via Online Card Classes.  They have a huge selection of classes and this is the one that is live this week.

Thank you for stopping by today.  Happy crafting!  As you can see, I’m embracing the imperfections!
