It's all a part of the learning process

Continuing with my watercolor pencil studies, on Arches HP this time, 4 x 4 inches. I am currently taking the online class, Watercolor Pencil Workshop, with Cathy Johnson. The course started last week and will run through June, so you can expect to see a lot more sketches done with this media. I am having a blast playing with these pencils. I was beginning to feel that I was in a rut with my colored pencil works. This kind of experimentation is just what I needed to shake things up a bit. And of course there are several more days left in May to fill with the Every day in May challenge!

Another new adventure for me is that I have joined an online critique group, Real Life Artists, put together by Krista of Hope in Every Day. I admire her focus for art study and she has gathered an inspiring group of artists. In fact, I am still a little overwhelmed with the talent in this new group. But that is a good thing. It's a group I am excited to be a part of and look forward to learning from them.

I think the watercolor pencils are just the thing to shake you up and get out of a rut. I love what you are doing and learning.

You seem to have your hands full! That's great, I envy that (in a good and seeking-for-improvement sense), please keep on sharing... :)

Hi Ann, I especially like the way the purple mingles with the greens. Wonderful landscape. Hope you're having fun in the WCP class.
