The Wonders of Watercolor

I have been having so much fun playing and experimenting with watercolor. It is a little more challenging than acrylic and requires a little more thought, at least for me. The transparency of the color  which lures you in makes it tougher to cover up mistakes, so you have to embrace them and move on. I could honestly draw and paint with these little bursts of color all day. 



 The 2 paintings above started with stamps that I purchased at Paper Crown in OKC. I love these girls and if drawing isn't your cup of tea this is a fun option if you want to try your hand at using watercolor. There is a class in the works using this line of stamps.

Working on perspective.

I love chairs.



I love giving my girls names and making up little stories about them. This girl gets in all kinds of trouble with her paintbrushes.

Just a Little Obsessed


Embroidery is one of the many things on my "To Learn" list. I decided to sit down long enough to teach myself ( with the help of the Internet). I have a stack of felt that I bought for something that I don't even recall now, so I decided it would make for good practice. It's like drawing with thread! I love it! Now I can't stop! It's not perfect but I embrace it, in its imperfectness. Not sure where these will go, maybe a canvas or a journal. 
I love the color and texture.
