Watercolor 16 x 24"
Thursday, February 12, 2015
Last week I went out with my camera. The morning started out really foggy and I was a little bummed, but decided to snap a few shots anyways. The sun eventually came out and I was shooting for several more hours, but the shot I used for this painting ended up being my favorite one. I was so excited when I saw the photo, and I got started painting right away. But, after 4 days of painting, I was unsatisfied. The progress was promising all the way through, but when I cleaned my brushes after signing my name, I was a little disappointed. It just wasn't what I wanted. But here it is, a few days have passed, and I look at it again, and I really like it. Even more than I thought I would. Funny how that happens. The painting isn't what I started out intending to do, but even though the results are different, I am still really happy with it. And the challenge is still there to do a watercolor painting and have it turn out the way I think it should. I wonder if that ever happens with watercolor.
