Simple watercolor postcards were used as students practiced using Nasco's chart of watercolor techniques.
Eight by ten canvas panels were covered with old book pages using gloss medium to create a collage effect for the background. Students then had to choose a living thing as a subject to watercolor. Unlike watercolor paper the paper tended to resist the color due to the gloss medium. Several layers were added to get the stronger colors. The rule of thirds compositional technique was emphasized.
The art of silhouettes was incorporated using a watercolor wash with salt resist technique on watercolor paper to create these beautiful images.
