For each day of the week, I will post a different reference photo, outline, and value study. Paint one or paint them all!
Paint 7 days, 7 reference photos.
Include the topic hashtag in your Watercolor – Beginners and Beyond Facebook group post: #7days7photos
Deadline January 27, 2023, 11:59 pm ET
I will update this post every day throughout the week with the new reference photo. You may do one or all of the reference photos.
These are all photos of mine. If you make a painting with any of these, and want to sell, you have my permission. You also have my permission to sell prints of your paintings. If I can help put food on anyone’s table or help buy art supplies, that is fine with me.
