So for the past 2 months I have enjoyed Beginner's Watercolor class every Tuesday night. It was just the medicine I was searching for! It added variety to my life, offered a time I could relax and in a way, meditate and be quiet from the routine of life; and I discovered a new talent! I had know idea I could paint and I was quite surprised by my results!
Come with me as we enjoy a stroll through my gallery of masterpieces.
(They are in order from first class to last class.)
My very first painting. My teacher instructed us to use both our left and right hands at the same time to both draw and paint this one. This is one of my favorites. I love how nicely the colors blend and how abstract it is.
In this painting I painted over a doily to create the lace on the table.
Some pretty flowers with soft blended colors
A still life vegetable painting
The great outdoors
The same picture, different seasons - Summer and Fall
On this painting I used part of a credit card to move the paint around to create texture in the rocks.
I think this is my best painting
Blue Jay and Sunflower (this one was really hard for me...need more practice with Sunflowers, I guess)
Another one of my favorites, Mr. Rooster
And...last of all, the painting I affectionately refer to as: Flower and Jar (I thought of that very "artsy" name all by myself.)
Please feel free to comment!
