We continued working on the still life and the colour mixing chart exercise. I still have a bit of work to do on both! My still life is coming along nicely, though I have made a few mistakes while doing my glaze no.4!! While mid-glazing, I was fixing a bit of a little mistake I had made and forgot to keep an eye on the rest of my work and ended up with watermark issues everywhere... hmmm! I am hoping when I do glaze no.5 it will cover them up! Fingers crossed!
I also did quite a bit of work on my colour charts... I love mixing colours!!

I really found it quite a challenge getting the greys right, especially in the cool colour chart... they turned out more green??? We weren't allowed to use black or white to get grey, they are totally banned from class, so it was a real challenge just using the primary red, blue and yellow! Kerry (Tutor) suggested that I haven't been using enough pigment in the washes! So I think I will be redoing these charts again with more colour pigment! I don't mind :)

I have really enjoyed this class so much and it really opened my eyes to the world of watercolour and how varied it can be... it was just too much fun!! Quite a few of the students will be going back next term and I wish I could too (there is so much more to learn), but I will be moving on and doing a drawing class next term... I really need to learn the basics again!! Can't wait!
