Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. Decided to kill 2 birds with one stone and did a landscape for my watercolor class. Applied what I have learned so far about landscapes to my watercolor picture. First did two thumbnail sketches, one is a value sketch and the other is a birds-eye-view, both using a graphite 6B pencil. Then I did the drawing on tracing paper and transferred it to the watercolor paper. For the watercolor painting I used Arches cold press 140 lb paper, 10 1/4" x 14 1/8" (26x36 cm) a round mop #24, a round #8, a 1/2 in. flat and a #6 rigger brush. In general I am happy with the result, although there is always room for improvement.

Hello lmfr, Congratulations on a charming watercolor and sharing your working process. Kudos to you for using lessons learnt in one class and applying them to an assignment in another class. In regards to the Plan view, this is well done and ensures that you are thinking spatially. The perspective pencil sketch is also well done. It cannot be endorsed enough that to have a tried and true working method would be of great benefit as you have shown here. Well done!
