Watercolor Beauty

The invitation to paint with watercolors came from my friend while we were away for our annual fall respite weekend. She had the paper, paints, brushes, and YouTube tutorial prepared. All I had to do was accept.

It took courage to say yes; to step out of my comfort zone and try something new.

We sat side-by-side following the tutorial.

I love how our painting reflects our individual styles. We used the same materials and followed the same instructions, but our results were as different as we are!

Can you guess which painting is mine?

It is the one on the left!

I loved the opportunity to look up at a watercolor tutorial and try something new with my friend.

How will you step out of your comfort zone today? What might you say yes to? You are invited to consider. . .

Wind

 The wind blows south, and then turns north. Around and around it goes, blowing in circles.  Ecclesiastes 1:6 (NLT)

Today I had a field trip to the pumpkin patch with my youngest. I decided to get right on my art at breakfast. I began with white pencil on this page drawing swirls of wind and the word wind.

I painted over it with watercolors.

The picture came into focus.

More character emerged.

Texture and glitter completed the page.

I am pleased with the results. And tired at the end of this long day! Do I end every post with that statement?

I have more ideas for this page, but for now I am calling it finished.

Good night!
