Taking the pressure off ... and picking up the brushes to doodle with watercolour. What fun! It's just a simple, playful piece, but I've included the steps and process as I'm so delighted to actually be painting. They're in reverse order, only because I do like having the end result up at the top of the post ...
Ok, ok, you guys out there who have been trying for years to get me to pick the brush up again and this time stick to it (you know who you are), telling me that I'd enjoy it, you were right. I get it now, I really do. It's about being serious without taking it too seriously.
There have been attempts at painting with watercolours before this - I'll add a list at the end for anyone interested in taking a peek - but somehow this time it's different. Perhaps I'm slightly more self-confident, and therefore more relaxed, who knows. But it's a joy. This time I'm sticking to it, so watch this space for more happy experimenting.
Previious watercolour attempts:
- Maple Leaf - did it in both paints and pencils. Preferred the latter.
- A little mouse sipping tea, Small Pleasures.
- My four-legged companions, Bella,
- and her sister, Bertha.
- A bunch of Red Tomatoes.
- Some Hyacinth Bulbs.
- My most recent attempt, Bird Coffee Cup.
Wishing you a day full of joyful new discoveries! Cheers.
