FO Friday: Waterlily

This week, I signed up for a watercolor class at the local Gilda’s Club. I’ve been trying to teach myself to watercolor with pretty good success so I took advantage of the free class.

The instructor printed out the image onto water color paper and showed us how to fill in the waterlily. I might paint in a solid background but I’m not sure yet. Since I have my own set of paints at home, he graciously gave me an extra page for me to paint in at home. He also had a still life set up for the more advanced student there. Perhaps next month, I’ll join her if the subject is again this straight forward.

  2. beautiful! i am also trying to teach myself but with the watercolour pencils as they were more budget-friendly than a whole set…

    • Thanks, Penny! I did buy myself a small travel set of watercolors. They’re called Koi by Sakura and the 24 color set was about $25? The quality is pretty good for the low cost. Plus it comes with a water brush. You fill the reservoir with water and then squeeze out the amount you want.

  3. Sounds like a fun class.
