When I am water color painting, his voice runs through my head…
“Stay Loose My Friend.”
I know – you do not want inside my head – eh?
I know I don’t have the skill to recreate the actual image…
but that is what I LOVE about watercoloring!
To me – it is freedom.
Freedom to express creativity.
It is not about recreating the exact image.
It is being inspired by the image to create your “own thing.”
So after watching an inspiring tutorial by Janet Rodgers, I decided to “wing it.”
In 15 minutes, without even sketching first, I just took paint and water to paper and created my “idea” of the peony.
Janet talks about just throwing water on the paper and keeping it “loose” and just the idea of the actual image – not the exact color nor the exact representation.
Watercolor allows you to express your vision of the image.
Mine is so far from artistic perfection,
but oh what freedom it is to create!
Thanks for visiting.
