Water colour painting experience

Yesterday I attended a water colour painting workshop. I had talked with a couple friends before the class one said that painting with water colours is difficult and another said the opposite. So figured that I would just go and have fun. The class was taught by a wonderful local artists based on Gabriola Island, unfortunately I did not write down her full name or other information. I did try to find her online with out success.

We did a total of 3 paintings. The teaching method used was very affective, Linda would do a brief demonstration and then we would return our work stations and copy what we were shown this was repeated through the day. I managed to take a few pictures before my card was filled up on the camera.
