I have always loved the beauty and softness of watercolors. As much as I love watercolors, up until this week, I had only tried painting with them once. My husband, Jesse, had taken me on a surprise art lesson around the time we got engaged and we painted with watercolors, but I have not tried since then. I was a little apprehensive about trying them only because I remembered really liking the lesson, but also remember it being quite challenging for me. This week as I ventured into exploring watercolors, I found that I really enjoy working in this medium… Watercolors are definitely not as forgiving as acrylics (which are primarily what I paint with), but it is good for me to learn to embrace this unpredictability and work, choosing to pursue it rather than avoiding watercolors out of fear that I may completely mess up a piece!:) Really good for a perfectionist like me!:) “mistakes” are beautiful… it just all depends on how you see them!:) I wanted to share with you the painting I began working on this week… I love the translucent appearance that watercolors allow and I hope to explore more watercolor painting in the future!
Have a wonderful weekend!:)
