Hi everyone =)  I just noticed I hadn’t updated anything on the website in a while, so I thought I’d post some new pictures of my latest project =)  My friend Veronica and I took a watercolor class, which was a blast!  I hadn’t done any watercolor since middle school.  I know Mom is really jealous of me now, watercolor is her favorite =)  Here are the paintings I did for class!  I think next we want to take an oil painting class if we can find one.

The koi pond was our first painting. I like it a lot, although I think I should add a wash over the fish so they don’t look so much like they are flying out of the water. I showed lots of people how to do this painting =) Art class is fun!

I love painting trees! These aren’t perfect, but I made my own tree to practice.

I made this up on my own to practice my leaves. The grass and the trunk aren’t great, but what about those leaves! =)
Image

Flowers! She added some orange flowers to hers, but I made mine magenta instead. Surprised? =)

I think still lifes are easier if you actually have the stuff to look at, but this turned out ok…

I love this one. For some reason it photographed well… =)

We did this one in only an hour! I was amazed that we could do so much so quickly.
