still life - lezione aquerello

still life
"yellow ginkgo bilboba  leaves + blue vase"
watercolour class - lezione aquerello
1/4 sheet canson fontenay 300g/m2

 black and white photo of the above still life

.....I've started another course of watercolour lessons last week with Marina Marcolin ....the excercise  was to carefully build up the painting in sections with "wet in wet" washes ..background , vase , foreground  and  then leaves ..adding some fine details at the end "wet on dry"... The yellow fan shaped leaves of the Ginkgo Biloba are so beautiful in the autumn .

Amazing watercolor, great composition and colors. I would like so much to join your class. My teacher is very good, but she is more in realism and oils, looking at watercolor as subsidiary medium. Please post more details about your lessons, if possible.
