Class Demo - Sketch to First Wash

This last week I worked with the Introduction to Botanical Watercolor class, showing them how to proceed from a sketch, to transferring a drawing to watercolor paper and then applying the first wash of color.

This African violet plant is my subject.
This is my sketch of the plant - locating and plotting the shapes
I transferred the sketch to tracing paper while changing and improving some shapes.

Here is the drawing after it was transferred to watercolor paper and a first wash of color is added.
