Adventures In Watercolor: Isolation Art, part IPosted: April 24, 2020
As I’ve mentioned in my post a couple of weeks ago, I’ve been using this extra time during the isolation/social distancing period to get back into my watercolors. I had this idea of painting a series of landscapes based on places I’ve traveled to, and another series of flowers in our garden, but I’m not good enough to paint on my own yet, so I’ve only been practicing with Youtube tutorials like makoccino, Draw with Shiba, and Karen Rice. What I really like about these channels is that they don’t require a lot of drawing. I can’t draw to save my life, so they’re perfect for me. I’m still struggling to control my washes – they often end up too light or too heavy – and my brushstrokes are terrible, but at least I’m having fun, and that’s all that matters (uh, I may have just inadvertently quoted “Father Ted” there. Been rewatching that a lot too.)
Anyway, on to the paintings:
I may paint more as long as the isolation lasts, so stay tuned!
