a quick watercolor study

I recently took a class with Danielle Donaldson and let me tell you she knows her stuff. I immediately wanted to practice and while it is so much fun to experiment with a new technique, new mediums and even new brushes I have to say- this is  hard! I am a little green with envy at all those amazing artists out there that make this art look so easy. It is not. At least not for me. I even struggled getting good gradients of color. Hmmm. Note to self: I must practice this more.
