Orange Day Lily Quick Sketch

An easy lesson that explores a Secondary Triad Color Scheme.

Although they need not be 'quick', working quickly in watercolor almost certainly requires working wet-in-wet and with confidence. No matter the starting idea, working quickly also develops several other skills valuable when working in a medium, like watercolor, that requires both confidence and freedom.

The main idea for this sketch is to explore the Secondary Triad, but we'll work on those other skills along the way.
