Watercolor Class

I'm taking a watercolor class from Moira Hahn. In this assignment, we considered value, painting a white object in black paint.  We were to choose between a cement squirrel, a cow's skull or a teapot. For me the choice was obvious, though I'm not quite sure why.

In another assignment, we were to practice applying two gradient techniques in eight, credit-card-sized rectangles, and then paint something in the spaces. When I was little, I asked my mother (constantly), what should I draw? She always said "a giraffe." So when I was at a loss for this one, I thought I'd go back to my roots. I decided to think outside the box a little.


  1. these are really nice! do you know hilary nordcliffe? she took this class too but it might not have been at the same time.

    1. Thank you, Maggie. I do not believe that I know Hilary. I learned tons in this class. It made me realize that I should take real in-person art classes, not just on-line.
