Weeks 1 & 2 with Dion Dior and Watercolor Pencils

I am loving this watercolor pencils class with Dion.  If you have enjoy painting with watercolor and have the time to invest in slowing down to listen and learn to Dion's video's I highly recommend her watercolor pencils class.

Some exercises are difficult and take a lot of time, if you want to learn the concepts she is teaching.

Here are the paintings I've completed so far -
Week One: We focused on blending.  Using 24 watercolor pencils, I came up with over 100 different colors to work with.
 We worked on the curly ribbon technique.

 and after practicing, put blending and curling together.
 last exercise for Week 1 was to work on blending and highlights.

Week Two:
We created a color wheel discussing warm and cool colors.
We worked on Color Bias and Temperature.

 Then we put our exercises to work.
 We continue to work with color blending and ribbon folding
 I'm only 1/2 way finished with week 2.
The classes and exercises are so in-depth, I really can't finish each week in just one week.
