If you’re ever in the Digby area of Nova Scotia I recommend taking a watercolour workshop with Poppy Balser (poppybalser.com). She offers four days of comprehensive instruction on various watercolour techniques and walks you through a step by step approach to completing a painting. Part of today’s lesson was a tonal study in preparation for tomorrow. I’m happy with the progress I made on the spray but not as happy with the rocks. It will be interesting to see how the coloured version turns out.
