Watercolour paintings

The above watercolours were painted during an art class at the adult education college at Nelson Bay, New South Wales.
The process of painting Storm Clouds began with a watercolour wash at the top of the paper, which was allowed to dry. This was over-painted in darker shades of purple (with a bluish tinge) and the paper was tilted to form the clouds. A further wash was laid to form the background for the trees, grass and houses.
The small canvas, measuring only 6 x 8cm, was painted to practice watercolour wash techniques learnt at the class.
The Lighthouse was painted to experiment with creating scenes using a few repeated colours and similar shapes.
