CAS Watercolour February 2020

So the best way for me to do a card for the CAS Watercolour is to just do a wash of color for a background.  I just have trouble with my watercoloring.  

This is a red wash using my Gansai Tambi watercolors.
The stamp set is Gina K. Inspiring Poppies

Day 1, 2 & 3 The Coloring Challenge Road Trip On-Line Class with Kathy Racoosin

Days 1 & 2
Plucking Colors not in the same color family 
and using color pencils to enhance in the nooks and crannies.  I need a lot of work on this.  I used a red color pencil on the first flower and a brown one on the second one.  I have trouble getting thin lines.  Also struggle leaving a white (sweet) spot.
The second picture is adding some white dots.


Day 2
I tried using different color plucking and like this one better, but it still needs work.
Kathy Racoosin says to be fearless.  I tried some white lines trying to be fearless.  Ugh.


Days 2 & 3
We worked on the face on Day 2 and then went on to the dress. 
Finished on Day 3.
I like how this turned out better. 


Another Day 3 project using Critters and using Colorless Blender for texture by putting it on a small piece of  wash cloth.
I think he turned out pretty cute.


It was a fun class with lots of tips to enhance your coloring.  Kathy always wants you to color at least 10 minutes a day to help improve your coloring.
