Greetings all. Hope everyone had a good weekend. Thanks for the suggestions regarding the hat. I still cannot decide. We'll see.
Here is the second lesson in my watercolor workshop book. I did this sitting on our good couch. It was supposed to be a study in wet-on-wet, but I didn't want to mess up anything, so after drawing in my images, I blocked in the colors with watercolor pencil and then spread them around with a wet brush.
You see, I have this quirk to my personality. For some reason, I never want to do exactly what the instructions say. I don't know why. You know how some folks, when trying to fix something-- do the same thing over and over again and expect different results??? It's kinda like that, except opposite. I do something different and expect to get the same results. I know I'm supposed to do what the professional instructs, but I have this mad scientist, rebellious type of mentality, that wonders, "Oh yeah, well what will it look like if I do this instead?"
I do this in other aspects of my life. I have learned that you have creative license when you cook, but not when you bake. You get in less trouble with hair color than you do with scissors. One thing I have learned, though is this...If it makes you sick, don't eat it.
One last thing that I learned from experimenting. Don't clip anything spring loaded to your eyebrows. Even though it gets a big laugh, it really hurts. (learned in early childhood, amusing myself while waiting for Grandmother in the hair salon).
Well, that's all for now. I hope to have some more art later this week. Till then, TA, TA.
