Overcast day activity

Today was my watercolor card class. Technically it was more watercolor than card. I started at the beginning showing them how to make a value chart, which is very important if you want to learn how to make washes of a color.

From there we worked on using very light colors to indicate petals in the background versus dark colors of petals in the foreground… Like these corn flowers…

They did very well actually I think sometimes explanations help even more than showing someone how to do it. The why behind it is very important. So we had a corn flower day. A great activity for an overcast day.
