Oh, this challenge brings me way back to my college days. I took a couple of art classes and learned some basics of painting. I haven't painted in SO long. So, here's my best attempt. You can watch how I created this on www.youtube.com/sunshinecreation.
Paper: Strathmore Watercolor paper.
Paint: Reeves Watercolor
Noel ~ Gosh, I'm not sure about this one either.
Have a sun shiny day!
