January is for Pinecones

Happy New Year!

My Tuesday Watercolor Class for Serious Beginners will be foucsing on painting pinecones during the month of January. We will be painting the same subject using several different techniques each week to hone our watercolor skills.
This is an example of starting with a wet in wet background then adding detail and definition with value and contrast. Although this is a simple work in progress I think you can tell they are pinecones and see where I might "pull" some more from the fuzzy background.
If you live in the area and want to practice your watercolor skills --- join us!
Keep those brushes wet!
