I used to love water coloring and it was my first medium that I got to experiment with as a child, however as a teenager I was informed I wasn't very good at it and moved onto acrylic painting. So I decided that I wanted to be a child again and simply play with watercolors at my young age of 55...the devil can have all the negative opinions, I simply want to discover my old friend again. I invested a pretty penny for all the Peerless watercolors that I could find figuring that if I spent my inheritance crafting allowance on it then I might stick to my plan better. This is what my desk looked like trying to sort out all the color strips.
I also romanticize the phenomena of plein air painters and have always dreamed of taking my watercolors outside to ....destinies to paint. Making a trip to a location is much more "artsy" than sitting in a studio. This is the end result of being an art major studying Vincent Van Gogh, Claude Monet and other famous plein air artists. Nevertheless, I only made it as far as sitting out on my balcony for my first attempt, lol Guess you can say it is a baby step in the right direction.
This is the corner of the balcony I was focusing on although being seated when painting is a whole different point of view than standing when I took the photograph.
This is my summer goal to do a watercolor every day....but what are we if not lofty and unattainable in our goals? :)
