Just finished Stewart White's watercolor workshop in Easton. These are what I did in the workshop.
The last one is done from a photo. I think it kind of shows it.
Stewart White does wonderful watercolors. He won the first place in Plein Air Easton last year. He recommended the book "Mastering Atmosphere and Mood" by Joseph Zbukvic. It's a really good book, especially with the idea of "watercolor clock". But it's now selling for over $200 on Amazon.
What I take away from this workshop? Practice, practice, practice! Watercolor is so different from oil painting. A lot of it is knowing when to do certain things with what brush. And the knowledge comes from experience.
