Hi Gabriella. Happy to have you join us! I've only completed the first one and it is a big yuck! I keep reminding myself I'm just starting. And, I need to get upstairs and paint.

Here are a couple of addition people taking the class. I invited them to join us. Bet they'd love to hear from you too!!

I'm not participating in the class, just stalking the thread . Here's someone else I spotted who probably started her gallery to share her class work: Melyane007 Member Gallery - Page 1 - Splitcoaststampers.com

Thanks, Sabrina! I’ve invited them to come chat with us. I did a gallery search and found quite a few.

Hi ladies that's me Tanja! (just pronounced Tanya) I am an Aussie, born in the Netherlands. I feel so appreciated that you spotted my work.

I have been on SCS for many years but haven't added to my gallery for 5 years until now (blush). This is my first online card class. I'm enjoying your thread, but sad that some supplies are not as readily available here. I haven't seen the Artist's Loft paints. I have been too the US twice in recent years and you ladies are really blessed with their range and prices (I was like a kid in a candy store!) or lolly shop as we call them lol.

I'm enjoying the class but need to let the water flow more and not be such a perfectionist, going back and adding tiny bits of paint when it is all dry.

I haven't tried Class 3 yet, lettering scares me. Who else is scared? Kristina and others are so good at it!

Tanja, so glad you joined us! I alternate between letting too much water flow and not enough! Lettering scares me too. Keep in mind the instructors have been at this for years to perfect their skills.

I agree about the amount of water. to use. That the part I get frustrated about in all the classes I "take". I can never get the amount right and when they dip, its always off camera.

I only had time to do the little bird from day 2 and the easy block letters from day 3. I watched the videos for the lettering and I'm thinking I'm going to have problems as a left-hander. I think the strokes will be a bit off. Plus I keep putting my hand down in wet paint.

Anyway, I wasn't thrilled with the bird originally but he's grown on me and I'm pretty happy with him now. Yep, its a him, his name is Herb.

Oh dear - I was so happy I did the first part of the first lesson - I made the card for me! It’s the first time I’ve made a card for me! I love it - have to do this more often. It’s the first time I’ve ever done anything like this. Normally it takes me a month to make ONE card. And I made this in one afternoon. Hurrah!!! Now I want to do some challenges (after the watercolor class) because before I thought I would never get the card finished in time. BUT - I’m disappointed- I was so proud I wanted to show all you gals my card, but it only would come up in the message as a big long line of letters and symbols and what not. I tried to save it to the watercolor group - I put SWC 01 in the title and Simply_ watercolor in the key words - but it isn’t there. (Sad face). Anyway -I did a card.

Hi there KSStamper, we'd love to see your card and are happy to have you join us. Did you try to upload to your gallery or to this thread? Hoping one of us can give you a hand.

Thanks Carla. I tried to upload it to the thread - and that’s when i just got a lot of letters etc. I did manage to upload a photo to my gallery - but I thought if I put in the Simply-watercolor keyword and the SWC01 title it would go into the class gallery, but it didn’t.

Now that your card is in the gallery, you can copy and paste the link to the thread so it's easy to find.

Is anyone like me and going back to do the lessons? I like the designs (and will use them if they look decent) but I think theyíre making me practice the basics like getting the right amount of water, patience in letting an adjacent area dry, brush control... Shoot, I even need practice on the right amount of pressure to put on the pencil so that the sketching is mostly hidden. Of course, I could be overthinking. Iíve been known to do that...

Yes, to the light box. I have an old one tucked away in our office closet and I’m SO glad I didn’t donate it to a rummage sale last month! I had it in the car to take it and changed my mind.
A sunny window works, too (in case that helps anyone)

I was thinking along the same lines, that these lessons could be used like a watercoloring 101 type thing for practice and growth. Since I liked the way my little bird turned out I plan on trying to draw different types of animals for practice.

That’s part of what I refered to earlier about some basics not being shown. The effect of more and less water in some simple shapes would have been a great video. Olya spent time on that in the first Studio Calico wc video - however, we used water brushes for the class, so it isn’t identical. Not as far off as apples to oranges, but maybe winesap to golden delicious.

Life happened and all I’ve been able to do is watch videos! But I’m big on playing catsup.

Today I’m going to an art therapy workshop (!), first one. It’s for anyone affected by cancer - patient, family, friend, in remission, grieving. (My husband has cancer though is NED* and in treatment in an immunotherapy study.)

Then off to get a haircut early evening, maybe while covered in paint or who knows what. So today is mostly shot too. I’m with you in wc spirit!

One of the most helpful exercises in the Studio Calico class, if not the most helpful, was drawng a page of circles and watercoloring them. More water, less water, one color, two colors, overlapping circles, etc.

I didn’t practice after the class, so lost whatever headway I had made, but it made such a difference in control and desired outcome.

We got a set of cards to practice on, but also did exercises by drawing circles or squares, for example, on wc paper. And not everyone had the cards.

Screenshot is the cards from the SC site, just to give you an idea of ways to practice without the goal (aka pressure for me!) of making a card.

Thanks so much for sharing this (including the screen shot). Those will be great to practice!

I think I just misunderstood what the class would encompass. Now I understand it is simple watercoloring that can be done on cards, not meant to teach watercoloring basics. But I’m still really happy to be taking it. I’m learning things I will use (and possibly some that will continue to challenge me, lol).
One thing others have shared and I’m finally understanding: paper makes a huge difference. I’ve tried the Canson paper so many times but my work often looks TERRIBLE on it. My attempts on the bee paper look so much better. The color flows, mixes and settles differently and in a way that I am finding easier. If you are having a hard time, it just might be the paper.

Here's my card for Day 1. I'm working on Day 3 tonight. I wasn't really inspired by Day 2. I'm also a day behind, but it's all good - and I'm having fun!

Finished Day 1, here's the results. Not sure when I can get back at it. Celebrating our son's birthday tonight and Bunco is here tomorrow so I've got cleaning and cooking to do!

Your cards turned out great, Carla! I love the plaid "60," and your colors are wonderful. I'm partial to blues myself.

Card for Day 3. I don't think it's one of my best, but the more I look at it, the more I like it.
