A weekend of painting (or trying to!)


I spent this last weekend at a beginners watercolour painting class here in town. 
Loads of fun, a touch of frustration now and again, and loads of drooling at others works of art!

I got loads of practice at apples and mushrooms :))

The top painting is india ink and water.
The bottom painting is india ink, watercolour and water.
I did have lots of fun and am very encouraged to keep painting! (or trying to paint LOL)

After all I have got quite a few journals to fill!!

Hope you're having a fab week!
Carole :))

I would say you are pretty darn good, really - the mushrooms and apple are wonderful. I'm impressed. You go girl.

Oh Carole...love both of these!

I have a beautiful collection of artist quality water colors...I have been wavering between taking an online class...or a class at our local community college....I'm thinking that water color would be best taken in a real classroom? Would you agree?

Very nice work!! Me, too...I am learning how to paint with watercolors, too. For the very first time. I love your mushrooms. Also - just signed up for your Journal making class...Can't wait to start - looks like tons of fun.
Have a great day.

You are much too modest. I think your "trying" is very good!
