A few days without making something made me grouchy, so I took a little time this afternoon to try another of Karine’s exercises; abstract watercolors. It was super difficult for me, but wonderful to be challenged in this way.
Out of 16 little studies, these are the only two I liked.
I learned a few things about myself:
1. I don’t like my brushstrokes to “show.”
2. I prefer organic shapes to geometric.
3. I need to paint more. Every day. All the time.
4. I suck. ;)
Regarding #4, don’t worry! I don’t REALLY think I suck, and yet I really DO think I suck. Get it? :D
It’s just that human thing.
In other news… we’re living in Downtown Seattle now!
