Painting Challenge: Reflections

This week’s sponsor is Graham Berry, and the challenge is to paint reflections.  Graham always challenges us to step outside our comfort zone.   It’s a good thing to do — your comfort zone becomes bigger!

Paint a reflection.     

Include the topic hashtag in your Watercolor – Beginners and Beyond Facebook group post: #reflections

Deadline July 29, 2022, 11:59 pm ET

It could be reflection in water, on a wet street, wet sand, any reflection.

This is one of Graham’s tutorials.

Here are some reference photos from Graham that you may use.


What is the prize?   

The prize for one random winner will be a one-year subscription to Graham Berry’s courses: Paint with Graham.  There are over 95 full tutorials available immediately with a new tutorial added every 2 weeks.  His painting style is perfect for both beginner and experienced artists.

If you’d like to try a tutorial for free, sign up here.   I learned so much from this free tutorial about using a limited palette, creating warm light, and to allow the paint to “do its thing” and not fiddle with it too much.

If you missed the World Watercolor Month challenge, check it out.  It is throughout the month of July!  Lots of awesome prizes from our sponsors!
