I'm lovin Watercolor

So much to learn, paper, brushes, paint and how much water to use.
I've wanted to learn watercolor for years.  I took a lesson from
Jerry Yarnell, he's the guy on TV, he actually lives about 30 miles
From us .  It was a great class, I learned lots.

I've painted a few birthday cards, people are so gracious
Saying they like them.  I've been practicing.

I've watched loads of YouTube watercolor videos.  I worked on trees yesterday.  I need to spend some time mixing paints and working with brushes.

But, I've wanted to see if I could paint a picture from a photo so this is what I worked on today

Tulsa State Fair 2015

I had 4 entries in different categories for the Tulsa State Fair this year.  The Tennessee Waltz didn't win a ribbon............however the other 3 quilts did very well.  I was so excited.

dabbling with my new hobby....watercolor

This is like the 5th picture I've worked on.  I've signed up for Watercolor classes with Yarnell School of Art, however no openings at this time.  Soooooooooooooo naturally I went to Youtube, lots of lessons there.

I'm discovering how to use the's certainly different to work with than Acrylic paints, but I'm lovin' it.  So from time to time I'll post I can see my progress as well as you all

Road to Oklahoma Quilt finished

This quilt has the same fabrics in it as the Tennessee Waltz Quilt.  Both are going to grand daughters who share a bedroom.  This one is for the one who was born in Oklahoma.  I love this quilt, I named it Summertime in Oklahoma

Tennessee Waltz Quilt finished

I decided to make the TW quilt Twin size.  I'll give it to one of my grand daughters who was born in Tennessee.  I pieced and quilted it on my Bernina 750 (my workhorse) I love this machine.  I washed it so it would go ahead and puff up.  Soon you will see another Twin quilt made with the same fabrics, however I'm using Road To Oklahoma pattern.
