I got up before everyone else this morning and sat in the chair looking at the view we are leaving in a month. I decided to get brave and do a watercolor of it. I started with watercolor pencil, which really helped me get my shapes down, but it turned out way too light, so I painted over that with regular watercolor paint. It’s 9 x 11 on Strathmore 140 lb watercolor paper. I feel it captures the peaceful feeling I had this morning, and I am realizing that my own art is about capturing the energy of a moment, rather than its details. So I’m pretty happy with it! I don’t like working in a spiral though, I’ve decided. I have some pre-cut 8 x 10 watercolor paper on the way that will be fun to experiment with instead.
