Finished a watercolor painting today, the first real one I’ve attempted since starting the strathmore watercolor workshop. The instructor makes it look so easy, but I need a LOT more practice, lol. It was fun painting something other than color washes and flowers tho, trying to get the shadows and tones right, and noticing more detail in the photo than I had before. It was a lot of fun! I used mixed media paper, did a pencil sketch first, then used Daler Rowney Water color paints.
I did some paint splatters at the end, just for fun. I will definitely be looking for a new subject to paint soon! I still want to try some of the different techniques Cathy showed us in the lesson videos.
Even with the painting, still found some time to clean, do a load of dishes, and cook an awesome supper! When I skip sweeping around here for more than a day or 2, the dust bunnies tend to grow teeth and roam the floors in wild packs! Got to watch out for that! So over all it was a good day, I didn’t slack off entirely. ;P
Sometimes my pen gets ahead of my brain and my spelling suffers greatly, so please ignore the typos 😦 Still a lot of pages left in my little list journal! Can’t wait to see them all done! And maybe start some more next month!
Thanks for stopping by!!
