I made this based on a tutorial but I forget what the link was
I was absolutely clueless (consider that I completely followed a tutorial) in how to use watercolors, especially watercolors on hardboard, so this is how it ended!
I got graded : 60.. how low! :(

I don't know why you were given a 60. I think your picture has a dream like quality, I appreciate it very much. Good job!

I agree, this painting has a lovely dreamlike quality.  I think it's gorgeous!

well thanks for the understanding! LOL
I did kind of have a dream while painting this. Painted it when I was half asleep. Literally.

Actually I didn't want to go dreamy at all, because this is a class, and when we want to get good grades we ought to follow the rules....which include: "do REALISTIC style!" and.. Oh wait.. I think that's the only rule. :(

The prof wasn't very open for the boundless int'l styles, he was stuck in chinese painting style. RIP him. Just passed away last week.
