Learning from Danielle Donaldson
I discovered a wonderful site for on-line art classes, JeanneOliver.ning.com. I bought a class from her, "Compass Hearts," taught by Danielle Donaldson. I liked Danielle's work and was interested in working with watercolor for a while.
The piece about is inspired by her class, but it is not really the class project. Some of the motifs are similar to hers, but the bear is mine.
Danielle gets her color palette from scrapbook papers she chooses for the rings and hearts. She embellished the watercolor paper (I used Strathmore Mixed Media paper which worked really well) with floral-inspired watercolor motifs.
I really enjoyed it and will work onwards from here.
