I visit the Machado School in Morgan Hill, California, painting the back of the building.
I share some instructional tips for rendering architecture in transparent watercolor and I talk about how I learned handwriting and drawing as an elementary school kid growing up in California.
Here are the colors in my little watercolor palette:
1. Permanent Carmine :
2. Payne's Grey:
3. Ultramarine blue :
4. Cerulean blue:
5. Permanent green olive :
6. Cadmium red medium:
7. Venetian red:
8. Sepia:
