Georgia O’Keeffe Part 2: Watercolors

After we drew our O’Keeffe compositions, we were ready to paint.

We learned about three watercolor techniques: Dry Brush, Wet into Wet and Graded Wash.  See if you can’t find these different techniques in our paintings below.

I LOVE the leaf shape in this one!

The way the purple flower is drooping makes this really interesting.

The complimentary colors in this painting really add some spunk to the flowers!

Warm and cool colors as well as the Sharpie lines add some wonderful contrast in this painting.
