Blind Contour Friday and Watercolor Science

This week we drew my daughter's jewelery box from when she was a little girl (when the movie 'Anastasia' came out)  She chose the theme this week and joined us.  It is nice doing blind contours with a group because you can look at each others interpretation and also see what they concentrated on.

Yesterday we had unusually cold weather for where we live,  and I had a thought seeing frost on the car window.  What would happen if you did a wash of water color and put it outside wet?  I got my answer.  It actually showed up.  What a happy surprise!

  1. Hi Florence, FUN! It's interesting to see all three blind contour drawings. I was looking at what is similar and where each artist's uniqueness shows up. Nicely done. I like the frozen watercolor too! Cool!
