Greens play for St. Patrick's Day - watercolor class lesson, 3/11/14

Make color charts and experiments with the yellows and blues in your palette.
Overlay blues on yellows, then yellows on blues. Use varying strengths. Label the colors as you go. Label what you did for each version.

Sheet two is two versions of a shamrock. Lay down a wash. Dry. Create the shamrock by negative painting the background. Note the colors. Do another variation. Note the colors. Even note how you applied paint and what kind of brush you used. (Though I have done neither here.)
