Sketching and Watercolor: Journal Style - Lesson 2 Greens


Sketching and Watercolor: Journal Style - Lesson 2 Greens
Originally uploaded by Cheryl Gebhart

This page evolved over several days. I started with the tiny jade first - and only the part to the left of the word. Then I added what my husband called Woodpecker Alley Shrub (which no google search could find). Then I added the maple leaf. Finally I decided the jade was too small and added a few more leaves - probably not a good idea, since I couldn't really get the same angle or even the same greens, but it's done now. I'm fairly happy with the maple leaf and shrub, not so much with the jade - I don't work well that small. But I'm really enjoying the class and working in this style.

Lovely page, Cheryl. I like how your husband has named the unnamed shrub, too!
