Sketching and Watercolor: Journal Style - Lesson 1 Fruit

In addition to my Imaginary Trip to Paris, I am also taking an online class from Jane LaFazio called Sketching and Watercolor: Journal Style. Jane has a very loose painting style that I admire. This is my first painting for Lesson 1. It is a different style than I usually paint, but I like it. I am trying to loosen up!

This looks like a fun page. I like a loose style also. I like most every style but could never do photorealism. That kind of detail would drive me mad. This page of yours looks graphic and bright. I'll bet it went pretty fast too (I've done some in a similar vein). It's fun to know different types so you can do what fits the subject, time and circumstance. I'll have to keep an eye on what else you do in this class.

I really love the reflected color in the shadows, Cheryl! This has a fun, spontaneous feel as if you did the page on the fly!

Sounds like an interesting class. I saw another friend that is taking Jane's class. Great job on the fruit!
