My classes spent a couple of weeks working on watercolor with pen and ink.

The first week we dropped watercolor onto our paper in the approximate shape of a hydrangea.

Then we "found" the hydrangea petals and leaves, using a Micron pen to outline them.
This was my "show and tell" for them - the colors are too bright.
This one done in class as a demo is better, I think.
The next week we first drew the outlines, then added our watercolor.
My demo for this technique.
Here are a couple of the students' work - I forgot to photograph them during class, and some forgot to bring them back the next week!

After some minor "wailing and whining" they all did a fine job!
Here are a couple more that I just got yesterday!

I bet they really enjoyed that class. Even with some whining and wailing going on. LOL
