In May and June of 2015, I studied abroad in Florence, Italy and took classes in Watercolor Painting and Renaissance Art History. I had not previously done much painting, but I took a drawing class earlier in the year which helped with getting dimensions/relations correct, etc. The unfinished painting that is near the bottom was created the second day of class – we had to mix all of our greens from red yellow and blue to create a landscape. As the course progressed, I found that I liked mixing all of my colors from the three primary ones because it was easier to change shades slightly and in the right direction. The paintings where the main subject is a tree were worked on extensively over the last two weeks of the six week course, and the others were done in class.
