OCC, Day 9 Freehand Watercolor

Today's class lesson is free hand watercolor. Yikes. I will need to practice this technique....a LOT, if I'm going to feel comfortable with my results. Here's my first attempt. All I will say is, it passes enough to stay out of the wastebasket. Needless to say, not one of my favorite projects, but it was still fun to do. LOL

This assignment was to make a simple freehand tree using watercolor. I used Distress Inks, seedless preserves (purple), forest moss (dark green), bundled sage (light green), chipped sapphire (blue) and for the trunk, walnut stain.

A little closer look at the "tree". It's a cool technique, I'm just not sure I captured very well. More practice required. ;)
