Umbrellas Lesson 2: On a 2.5x3.5 inch piece of watercolor paper (known as an ACEO and collected/traded around the world!) draw just a few lines to put the walls and umbrellas in place. Then paint the colors and shapes that you see, not worrying much about accuracy. Looking at mine, I have decided that I am going to eliminate the lad...y on the left in lesson 3, and just rough in some shadows for the folks down the alley. Shape and color of the umbrellas, plus that beautiful blue wall are key.

Painting tiny is a little hard, but you can promise yourself to be better when there is more room.
