Sharing with you a work in progress from these watercolor paintings I shared Monday (find more photos of the individual paintings here.)
Unfortunately, I failed to take photos of the canvas from the beginning, but there is still much work to do on this piece, so I will try to take more photos throughout the rest of the process!:) I have actually had this canvas started for months now, but have really struggled to know what to do with it… I have already added and taken away birds, tried other papers, etc… It just wasn’t happening, which can be discouraging. But I would encourage you (as I try to remind myself often), that its not about the end, but the process is so valuable, and sometimes we need to just step away for a while and come back with a new and fresh perspective… chances are, we will see things very differently. So many life correlations through this creating thing ;)
This is my first time incorporating watercolors into a mixed media piece to such a large extent, not to the mention one of the first times I am using such vibrant colors!:)
Here are some photos after I cut the watercolor paintings and added them to the canvas!:)
I am having a lot of fun with watercolors and the bright vibrancy they bring to a piece.
What do you enjoy most about watercolors?
