A Trip to the Beach

Recently I took a class with Laure Ferlita called A Trip to the Beach. It was a virtual trip and it was wonderful. I highly recommend anyone who wants to have a fun time learning to paint with watercolors to take one of her trips. Here is the link to her class descriptions. There will be a trip leaving for the beach in just a few days. You will be very happy if you decide to join her. I am getting ready to go for her trip to England next!

These are the pictures of my completed paintings for the class. If you don't like the beach join me in England. I was really new to watercolor and this is what I did so you can too!

Laure I can't thank you enough for expanding my world. This was a great trip.
