Water colour class at a local art museum

I found out that my local art museum was offering a water colour class very cheaply, including materials. Since I was supposed to work that evening, I convinced one of my colleagues to switch with me so I could go. She kindly agreed!

We started off just letting primary colours blend into each other to form abstract landscapes.

The one on the left is my second one, where we were supposed to keep the work abstract but go in another direction. The one on the right is from when she showed a simple technique to paint trees.

By using the same technique, I painted a more fanciful tree. I had this oddly shaped brush to work with, but it lent itself well to the exercises and created interesting strokes. I might invest in one for myself…

I miss this medium! It’s so much fun, but I get so lazy in every day life…
