Blissful Bluffs

I had a most delightful weekend taking the class I mentioned earlier and here is another watercolor. The teacher had me make a sketch from my photo (the weather was terribly cold so I stayed indoors) and then put my photo away. I worked from my black and white sketch and did my best to come up with colors that were true to life and interesting. In reality the background bluff was darkest but I wanted to push it back, so here you can see all 3 images. Working under another person's tutelage is a bit like working with your non dominant hand as I mentioned the other day, but still a great experience. Hope to see his influence finding its way into my subsequent work!
