This is not my art

No this is not my art.

I am seriously considering doing something similar and this tutorial is extremely good.  It shows how a few simple shapes and watercolor washes can create a really nice piece of art.  Check it out here.

Seriously, go to Grow Creative for an excellent tutorial that will inspire those who think they couldn't manage a painting this complex.  You'll be surprised, I'm sure.  I haven't met Elise but she certainly has an impressive blog.

Now, if I can just get motivated enough to actually get my art supplies art and make some room to do some art.  My studio table is covered with everything from beads and wire to polymer clay and saw blades.  My own dear Mother, RIP, used to say to me that if there was a flat surface in the house, I would make sure to clutter it up with something.  I think I can make room on the kitchen table for some watercolor supplies.  I think I can....we'll see.

pretty! be sure to post pictures when you make yours. I used to paint.. but it was tole painting.. and hardly counts as "real" art. I've been considering buying some water colors and playing around a little... but it wont be for a while!
got a little giggle about every flat surface being cluttered with something... what else do you do with flat surfaces? when I used to collect bears like a fanatic, everynow and then I would find a "bare" spot.. that would become a bear spot! I still have bears around the house.. but not like I used too! have a great week

Well, first to Vivian: You sound like our Peg, who has a great many plush "friends" sitting on nearly every flat surface in our home. But if is makes y'all happy....

I like this idea and am going at once to the tutorial. Suggest you do the same and we can have show and tell here later!!
Momma was right, by the way!

Very cool!
Unfortunately, I'm not a painter. But I wish I was. That gene went to my big sister.
Be sure to show us what you're working on. I know it will be awesome!! ! ♥
