How amazing that you can take art classes on the internet! I've been following Sandy's class this past week and finally had the time free to do a watercolor with the basic set of Daniel Smith paints. I was surprised at how intense the pigments are. A teensy dab will do it. And this whole picture was done with only 3 colors. I love mixing colors and my biggest challenge is in being subtle enough with it all. It's amazing how much you can pick up just watching Sandy and listening. I haven't done waterolors seriously since I was about 12 or 13 and I'm loving this!
