In my watercolor workshop at 21 Secrets we are splashing about in a sea of vivid color, where paint flows and colors and doodles intermingle. Pop over here to see a short video introduction to Watercolor Playground.
I wanted to share with you more the gorgeous artwork posted in the discussion group and facebook group for the workshop. Find the first set of pages from the workshop here.

Julie O created a wonderland of lush color, with psychedelic paths to explore. What beautiful brush work and blending!
All of Cat Storey's pages are gorgeous, bright and cheerful. I especially love Cat's use of dark colors and purples in the edging and background of her bubbles. Purple can be tricky and this just rocks.
Molly of Molly Lolly Loo added a wavy twist to this technique with happy and playful stripes.
Artist Kelly Kono painted this multi-faceted playground. The depth of color is amazing!
In Kelly's words, "I have so much fun doing this technique, and find it so relaxing. It takes me days to finish because I just do a little bit at a time, but that's part of the reason why I love the watercolor playground because it gives me a place to be creative for a little bit, even if only for minutes, each day! I can spend as much or as little time as I have, and each time step away feeling fulfilled."
Lynn Holland brings her love of textile art to the page with doodle stitching and watercolor playing together in harmony.
In Lynn's words, "Even though I have only done the first lesson so far I know I am going to enjoy the rest. It's your unique way of putting it across. Previously I've always associated watercolours with painting landscapes and it all being a bit wishywashy. You have made it a contemporary art form for us all. Can't wait for my new paints and brushes to arrive. Thank you Tammy you are turning a none painter into an excited trier.'
Doodlicious rainbow love from Elhenfr, who is working through 21 Secrets with creative flair!
Susan Smith's waves of rainbowy goodness and hand lettering make me smile!
Some comments from the workshop discussion group:
"Tammy, you created such a delightful and fun class for us to learn in and I now have a new "love"!!! Thanks so much for sharing your passion with us all!! It has been so refreshing."
"Your class was like no other I've taken. Maybe because I was so keen on learning how to paint with watercolors, and you really instructed us! I learned so much."
