This painting was created with a variegated wash. The sky, water and land all blend together. I enjoy painting this way because it frees me up to let the watercolor do its magic.

I’m taking an online class taught by Angela Fehr. Our first lesson’s assignment was to choose 3 colors and paint a representation of a familiar place. Start with a big amorphous shape and finish with details that confirm shapes and directional guides. Using emotional energy and emphssis. I had fun!

My 7 year old grandson likes the paintings with a path but I often step into the woods without one and the moment needs to be captured in watercolor.

For my art class today I chose the assignment of painting my subject in one dark color. I chose the color moon glow. It was hard for me not to put in some color but it was a great lesson in value.

One of the challenges in the watercolor class I’m taking was to paint a familiar subject with “unusual colors” or colors you’ve never used before. I tried it and this is my purple forest. Great fun, and I now have two new favorite colors, lunar earth and ultra marine violet.

I’m continuing a practice series on the forest. I am encouraged by my teacher, Angels Fehr, to paint the subject many times experimenting with different colors and techniques, without expectations and free from failure. This is a great way to learn to paint.

This painting is probably my favorite. I painted it without a specific plan just knowing that I wanted to splash the color and texture of autumn.
