After my first very uncomfortable 5 days of the Direct Watercolor challenge (see the previous post) I started to find my balance and decided to relax and just see what I could achieve without needing to create something “finished”.
The white iris is my first attempt at negative painting.
People! Thank goodness for Anne-Laure Jacquart’s YouTube video.
Yet more people practice… this time watching Trevor Waugh’s YouTube videos.
I have a few toys to model for me when I don’t know what else to paint or when it’s late as it was this night.
More negative and positive painting practice. I love this little jar, and yes… the jar has no e in saccharine, and no… saccharine is not better for me.
Committing to daily practice was key… and understanding that it was truly “practice” allowed me to start enjoying my painting time.
I hope you’ll come back Wednesday when the adventure continues.
