Watercolor class demos

Here's a watercolor painting I did recently as a demo for my WC Studio class, showing how to paint wet-in-wet sunset clouds.

This was a quick demo for a workshop I taught at the college  (Encore Academy, Pasco Hernando State College) last spring.  I was again demonstrating the wet-in-wet technique with watercolors, using it this time while painting trees and foliage.  I like loose, expressive paintings rather than tightly controlled realism.  Painting wet-in-wet is one way to avoid getting too tight, because so much of what happens is out of your control - and often surprises happen - known as "happy accidents" when they come out well!
