Once again the Watercolor for Illustration students in my class at Bellevue College came up with some very accomplished paintings, many for their first try at watercolor. They worked on half sheets of Arches 140# cold press paper (15″ x 22″) enlarging compositions from a photo or photo collage and practiced a variety of watercolor techniques to create finished paintings. Many were not quite finished by the end of the course. I’ll post those later if they are sent to me. Here are the paintings that were finished, or close enough, to see the skill and challenges they brought to their chosen image using this difficult medium. I’m so inspired by them!
