After the paint and sip I went to on Saturday, I wanted to try doing some more painting, so I dragged out my water color set & had a go at it. The blue flower above was my first attempt. And, bleh? I drew a rough outline first & then painted it. At least you can tell it’s a flower, right?
Here was attempt # 2: a dead tree landscape, partly inspired by a YouTube tutorial I partially watched.
I didn’t want to add leaves, and I made the trunk too small, so it ended up being a dead tree. I think this was a definite improvement over the blue flower. One thing I neglected to do was paint in the background first.
And, attempt #3, a reddish/pinkish flower:
Well, I think this is better than the blue flower. I’m not totally sure how I feel about it, but it feels more watercolor painter-ly, which looks kind of cool to me.
So, there you go. I’m still going to focus more on drawing, I think, but it’s nice to try other mediums, & I would like to learn how to paint better too – so you may see more attempts in the future.
