A painting a day can be quite the challenge. While I was deciding on what to paint I just started on these flowers in a vase, just simple flowers. And I did just that. It was basically just going real simple. So on that note, here is simple flowers. I thought about not even posting it. But this is my journal of experiences, trial and errors. Putting myself out there just cause.
“Simple Flowers” by Doreen J. Bowers
9″ x 12″ Watercolor painting on watercolor cold press paper.
The picture itself is probably half the size of the paper. Am I happy with this? No not really but I was playing around testing myself. I need to stop focusing on the attempt of detail.
So as this week ends I realized all my paintings were done in watercolor. What I like most about watercolor is the clean up process because it is so easy compared to cleaning up after acrylic painting. I also liked the wetness of watercolor painting. I still need to work on this process and try different ways to paint.
Live and learn, that is my goal here and oh boy am I learning!
This new week I want to test out a different technique. I am not sure what it is called in the art world. My goal is to not attempt detail. I am trying to hard when I paint and I need to try not that hard….just do! Maybe at the end of the week someone can tell me what type of art it is? Realism, Impressionist, Folk art, or Abstract? I am still understanding the difference….we will see where I end up at the end of the week.
Well Day 18 done…..Check it off!!!
Have a great day!
