I have a few new projects to share.
I didn't paint much for a week or so.
I've been sick again. I really am thinking I need to work on my immune system. This time it went to my chest and I saw the Dr. Several meds later I'm better but still not well. I've been resting, sleeping, reading and watching TV. Trying not to do much of anything and give my body a chance to heal.
A class on wreaths with flowers
I did two and like them fairly well.
Then I decided to add 'Choose Joy' to the center of this wreath. Disaster!
So I kept adding and adding until I ended up with this mess!
So less is more and I also find I'm not good with painting words. Still I learned from it and that is the whole point in it!
I shared these pages from my workbook last time. I decided to just keep playing with the page on the left and this is how it turned out. I used a cheap $4 set of pan paints from Michael's as the teacher did. So you can use inexpensive paints to start and get fair results.
It really was a lot of fun! I'm feeling more confident in my color mixing. I'm trying to loosen up and just have fun. Where I made muddy flowers I added some ink pen to it and saved it I think.
Another class on loose painting with a large round #12 brush.
This was good for me. I find that I like smaller brushes because I have better control but the large brushes can make such pretty blends. So trying to push myself out of my comfort zone.
More large brush work trying to make Roses at the top from a tutorial. I think it's a fail. Then I just played with colors.
Trying some new techniques using different brushes.
More color and this feel like a success to me. Not complete but a good practice piece.
So that's the watercolor fun from the last couple of weeks.
Wishing you JOY,
