Water Colour – 260717

dsc02528

Hello everyone~

I went to the top floor of the house today and saw my watercolours sitting on the table and I felt utterly guilty! I remember feeling somewhat dejected with them last time I tried them out and did a bit of thinking. Maybe it was the subject matter that I chose that made me feel deflated with them? I have it stuck in my mind that I ‘can’t do realism’ so maybe trying something realistic looking wasn’t a good idea!

Today, I thought about basic shapes and how I could really simplify things – and how I could make Water Colours work for me? They are a tricky medium but I feel that they could really work out for me, if I could just apply them better somehow?

So, I got stuck in and tried a few things. I thought about flowers and bright colours and things that made me happy! Mostly because it’s a miserable day and I’m going to be stuck inside while my son and I endure the downpours.

Here is the start of something new again – I’m going to use some fine-liners to add a few more details to the flowers when the paint has dried properly, but I wanted to show that I am still plugging away at all things art; especially now that my twitter account is gone. A choice that I made, so that I could focus more on my Patreon and Blog for sharing my art with the world.

Enjoy~

    Hi Jenn, I focused on watercolors for about a year to try to get to grips with them. I prefer acrylics! Jean Haines has a book out called painting yourself calm. That was really helpful, and it is loose. You might like it. 🙂

      Thank you very much for the suggestion, I’ll see if I can find the book in the library.
      I’ve always enjoyed the thought of watercolours and how they flow, but like you, right now I prefer acrylics. I wonder if there is a happy medium out there?
      Thanks again.

  2. […] really pleased with these artistic offerings! They are the continuation of my previous post. As I mentioned in that post, finding a way for Watercolours to work for me hasn’t been easy […]
