My next class at Artists' Network University
starts next week! Once again I'll be teaching Watercolor for the Absolute Beginner
, which is ANU's most popular course. This 4-week course is taught online, so I get students from all over the world in my class.
Here is a great example of coursework painted by Lynn Jacobs in my last class. This was the last assignment of the course, and Lynn had already successfully completed a myriad of lessons that included mixing colors, negative and positive painting, value studies, perspective exercises, painting techniques, and more. In this exercise, Lynn mixed a full palette of colors and values using just a basic triad of primaries, and created this gorgeous painting using the techniques she learned in the class. Pretty amazing work for a beginner, isn't it?
