I'm taking a watercolor class at Laney college in Oakland for the second time. The first time, I learned the basics: color combinations, color values, painting round shapes, painting outdoors, and etc. This time, I'm practicing wet-in-wet technique with watercolor. It creates a beautiful color mix and simplify the objects. It works well with natural elements such as trees, ocean, water, sky. Adding some small touches and details at the end makes the painting look more alive!
