I have kind of fallen in love with making these feathers. I see a lot more in my future. They are fun to use to practice techniques. I learned to do them from Let's Make Art. Here is a like to the video.
Here is my first one
And there were two
I did them on a couple of pages. I was practicing more than trying to make a single piece
After doing the poppies, I had so much red out, I did a red one.

I am taking a watercolor class from Let's Make Art. I will not be posting the painting I have done so far in order but I thought it would be good to document the work here.
The first picture is an in progress painting. I was shocked how easy the poppies are to do. Just paint to opposite petals with a small white space between. Let that dry. Then go back with a brush with just water and add the other petals.
This next photo was the final painting.
I had so much paint on the pallet I did these too. I will use them on a birthday card for work.
Let's Make Art also does Let's Make Art Matter- They send a watercolor postcard with their monthly kit. It is addressed and stamped to be sent to someone who could use some support. This was my version of the card she made.
