It was a beautiful sunny day, it was an enjoyable outdoor session. I had questions and the instructor was very helpful in providing more information. For a beginner class I believe there was enough basic information about colours (and mixing them).

I have been teaching watercolour for 10 years, I have found white flowers is the most complicated part in watercolour, however if you know how to use negative technique it will be the most interesting painting you have ever done. This is the magic of watercolour.

Title or Location: Autumn
The Watercolour is partly from my imagination, and partly from a couple of buildings that seem to be in my memory, exactly where they are from I cannot recall. In the past I was an avid photographer of some 40 years and I have also have seen a lot images over the years. We are in the last month of Autumn in Sydney, Australia and I wanted to create a painting that expressed not only the warmth of the season but also a village that was welcoming as well.

I love watercolour since it will create something unique each time even if it is unexpected or accidental, it teaches you how to deal with issues that might appear in your life.. how to enjoy every single moment without living in the past or overthinking about the future, it teaches you how to be patient while you are doing something, it teaches you how to be consistent in you daily practices to achieve you goals.

I painted this flower just in 10 minutes, in 2 phases, the first one was done to show the background and some shadows, and the second phase was done after it had completely dried, to focus on the details of the flower, watercolour is an amazing media to have a quick sketch and start painting.
