These darned water colour thingies are fun! Best of all, you have to ‘work’ quickly, so it suits my level of patience with the finicky (a level somewhere close to zero).
I had a beastly week – conflicts at work with attendant drama and on top of it all, I’ve got bronchitis again. Suffice to say that I felt miserable, so I settled down and daubed my ‘Picture of Misery’ which I quite like (to my surprise). I even like the accidental splash of red that landed where it shouldn’t.
It might just be a fluke that I’ve produced something I’m quite pleased with, but I’m wondering if I mightn’t carry on with the new hobby and get a decent paintbrush or two and the correct paper. I might even study up on correct technique. Well… I might.
Thanks to all the artist bloggers. Really, thanks. Watching you all having fun with your creations is inspiring, and that’s the bottom line, isn’t it? Fun. Enjoyment. Expression. Even if I throw my pictures away afterwards (which I won’t) it’s the fun of painting them that counts – watching the colours spread onto the paper, taking shape. I like this!
