Pre Trip Practice Painting & Review

Today I got out some of my favorite books on watercolor journaling. I am reviewing my favorite lessons in these books so I can share some of these ideas with my students on our May trip to England and Wales.  

 Still life to practice paint

I’m also painting and drawing teacups and saucers in preparation for the trip since tea shoppes are wonderful in England. Usually in the tea shoppes in smaller towns the cakes and scones are homemade by a local and delicious. I am not practice painting cakes or scones because having them close by would make me eat them and I am trying to stockpile some calories for munching and sipping everything in the British Isles.
