Experimental Watercolor

I recently took a weekend class with Jan Heaton at AMOA school called 'Experimental Techniques in Watercolor: Found Objects'. It was relaxed and fun (we were encouraged to use leaves and objects in addition to brushes to paint). I think the best thing I learned was to work on several paintings at once, layering on color while others are drying. It keeps things loose and unfussy and brings out the best properties of watercolor. Here's some work from the class.
