I've been playing with watercolors. This is a Stampin Up image. I stamped on a sample piece of watercolor paper and used a water brush and a set of Winsor Newton watercolors.
I could tell you everything wrong with the way I painted these but I won't. I'm just beginning my watercolor journey and I know that if I sent one of these as a card the recipient would see a pretty scene with a boat.
I've been told that learning to paint is all about practice, practice, practice. I will continue to practice.
I find water coloring stamped images very relaxing. No stress of trying to draw something. I'm realizing I have to really think about where the sky peeks through the trees and where a shadow might be. I am hoping this new way of "seeing" is a learned skill because it's not instinctive to me yet.
A friend suggested I look at one part at a time instead of the whole picture. I'll give that a try next time. What is your most relaxing form of creating?
