Junior Jaimee Chirico, from my 3rd year Advanced 2-d class, just finished up her latest assignment, this lovely watercolor with pen and ink, collaged flower. It's so funny, Jaimee came into this unit telling me how much she hated watercolor, yet look at how beautifully this piece turned out. She really worked hard on a preliminary first to get her watercolor skills in place. What I love about Jaimee is that she sends a lot of time finding the perfect resource to work from, and then she comes up with a solid design from that resource. I really like how she used her collaged text, both within the flower and stems, and then also as cornerstones. Very clever girl! Congrats Jaimee, you conquered your fears :)
