So I have been trying out all new crafts over the past year, one being calligraphy and the other drawing/painting with water colour.
I know I suck…. When I first did these butterflies I thought they looked really good now I think wow what crap. But it’s all a learning curve, and I don’t have an art background so teaching myself to paint is quite difficult and frustrating.
I will say though, I have spent many hours getting lost in doing washes and trying to find the right balance with water and paint. I think i am getting better… So I tried one last thing last night.
I drew a geometric bird which I saw online and wanted to create a blended wash but I actually only wanted it to splash outside the lines – but I made a mistake and then ended up making the background the main focal point.
As Bob Ross would say, happy little accidents. I think i did okay with the background, it blended nicer than some of my other practices.
Hoping to get more done this weekend and lettering. I am saving up to get some decent paint, brushes and watercolour paper. The stuff I have is OK but not very good quality so makes learning not as fun as I think stuff would turn out better with quality paper.
That’s all for now xo
