Sky and Water, ages 8 to 12

The next element we added to our watercolor lessons is water. We did the big sky, with more clouds and a nice warm underpainting. Then added our treelines (lighter further away), and did our water. I have been teaching the class, step by step... doing once section of my demonstration and then letting the students do the same part. Once they finish that part, we move to the next. It has been a nice way to keep the paintings from getting overwhelming and to make sure the students understand the technique we are learning.
