Watercolor Workshop with Anne Abgott - First Project

Today was our first day.  In the morning, we learned the basic technique she uses to "mingle" colors on the page.  We all got the same black and white photo and transferred a line drawing (contour) of the shadow shapes only - onto our 300 lb Arches watercolor paper.  Then we used about 3 or 4 of prescribed colors to mingle.  Basically, you place them on the paper in the shadow area and allow the pure colors to touch and let them bleed into themselves.  Here is my picture. 

I'll have to post the afternoon project tomorrow since I was running late and did not photograph it!
