watercolor on Arches
Watercolor is NOT my forte - but I have decided
I need to change my feelings about it.
Yes, it is a
'put it down and there is NO correcting it'
kind of medium
and I think that is what gets to me about it.
With oil and pastel and even acrylic -
the 'correction gods' are forgiving.
However, I have lots of paper,
lots of paint,
just need the patience to
keep on painting and not worrying
that it doesn't turn out
exactly like I want.
This one I am satisfied with...the end of the nose
didn't come out exactly like she looks
but it's close!
I have been collecting ideas on Pinterest
on making 'smash journals' -
you can check it out by googling that one.
Made myself an "inspiration journal"
in which I can collect ideas, sketch,
paint, plan, doodle. It's kind of
a personalized sketchbook at least
that's how I will use it.
I will share it soon.
It has been fun ~ sort of
breaking away from the norm with making this journal
for the last few days.
