Mitch Albala Wet-in-wet Workshop

Above images are the outcome of today's Mitch Albala's wet-in-wet workshop at Winslow Art Center. These are 9x12 canvas pad and canva paper (I didn't feel much differences once I rubbed the first layer in). Top one is the fist practice putting 4 layers on the surface, progressively make a layer thicker. However, as always I had a problem putting a consistent layer laid out without scraping the bottom later off. It turned out my paint mix was not smooth enough, and I had to add a little more solvent or medium into the mix. That was the biggest finding in today's workshop.

The bottom right is obviously the last practice of the day for a still life. I think the yellow-green leaves are nicely popping up, but as Mitch commented, the window was supposed to be the lightest of this composition, which is not quite. I need to keep trying to create lightest rich colors.
