Painting Class: Hopper's Lighthouse

We critiqued the finished watercolor paintings from the recent Edward Hopper assignment earlier this week and I posted one of the favorites done by Tara above. Watercolor is one of the more difficult mediums to master and it's just the first assignment so don't get frustrated if you weren't happy with your results just yet. Remember focus on proportions, geometry, and the tones in the monochromatic painting and then well talk about color, texture, and feel later in the course.
