A few weeks ago, my friend Liz posted a photo on Facebook that was absolutely gorgeous! Here’s that photo:
I loved it so much, I asked for her permission to create some sort of artwork with it. She very kindly obliged!
I thought about it for about as long, and then yesterday, decided to finally stop thinking about it and just DO it. So I began my first-ever watercolor with the paint set I had purchased from Jack Richeson in Kimberly, mainly for hand-coloring my linocuts and woodcuts (we’re lucky – the factory warehouse and gallery is only about 45 minutes from my house!).
I even measured and masked out a block on some watercolor paper, also from Richeson’s. Here’s the result:
I have to say – for my first painting, I’m happy with it! And I had so much fun making it, I’m spurred on to make more. I don’t know where this will take me, but I’m excited to experiment more! 🙂
