One student decided to start with this painting which is shown as a step-by step painting in Jan Kunz's book, Watercolor Basics.
Here is the student's version. I like its vigorous style and bold colors. She drew only a portion of the original sketch. She added Indian Yellow and Alizarin Crimson to the Ultramarine Blue and Burnt Sienna that were suggested in the directions.
The photo I took was not well lit so the colors are only an approximation of the completed painting. The student put her own artistic thoughts into the painting. The leaves are her own style and so are the flowers. I can feel a light breeze and spring sunshine as I look at her creation.
The third student elected to use a pot of tulips for inspiration.
The leaves are a company of dancers. The tulips have the starring roles. Again, the lighting was not good so the photo below is an approximation.
