I thought I would post this value study I did for Kate Johnson's on-line WC class. As a total newbie to watercolor I have to admit this is all quite a challenge. With my EDM sketching I found I enjoyed adding some wc and of course I have always admired those to make it look so easy to paint only in watercolor. This medium always seemed totally unattainable to me. After a total failure, I started anew and managed this sketch. I am struggling but certainly learning big lessons. This one was fun and yes I now understand that value is really much more important than the actual color. This medium is one that never is fully accomplished, there is always more to learn and try and do and amazement awaits.
