On My Own

I have not had watercolor class since before the holidays. My teacher decided to clean her shop on the 4th, and last week it snowed on Wednesday. But I got an new book on Cyber Monday from Costco so I decided to work it.  I am still on the first project.

Here is how the project looked in the book.

This is how I changed it make it 'my own.'

It reminded my for poodles that had been dyed. So I painted dyed poodles.

Then I went back and tried painting the daisies, again.  I think they turned out better the second time.  What do you think?
Still, the daisies just don't look right. So, I have started (not finished, yet) painting the daisies sans fluorescent colors.
As you can see, books are a good way to learn a new skill, but they will never replace a good teacher.

  1. I love your daisies. I agree the second ones were even better than the first. I also like the white ones. The poodles made me laugh! I'm glad you're blogging again! I've been waiting for you!
