Watercolor Variations

House Collage

Watercolor Variations

Last year I took a workshop from Judi Betts, and she had us do 6x9 blocks,
with a triad. I normally choose the transparent triad which is cobalt blue, Permanent Rose, and Auerolin Yellow. They are springy, summery looking to me. The large painting was the one I did in her class. She gave everybody a photo of a house, and we had to do our own thing with it, after doing an under-painting with our triad. The House Collage are 6x9 paintings that I did this week, Using the same photo, just different ideas. I stayed with just those three colors as long as I could. At the end, I added a few others for dark's, and the Red Roof.
The small studies are fun, and fast to do.
