Chalk Artist Crop
4″ x 6″ Watercolor Postcard
This is a little closeup of the artist I posted on Monday. It’s a 30 minute quickie, playing with watercolor and that great hat! I am trying to see things more in the form of shapes, when I look at darks and lights.
I may want to change the way I describe myself from self-taught to blog-taught. I am learning so much from watching all the wonderful artists that so generously share their work. I am happy that people like Leslie White not only post their work, but explain how or why they did what they did.
I have also learned a lot from the gang over at WetCanvas, where I have been painting since I picked up that first brush, in 2007, after a 30 year haitus. The environment is so amazing for beginners, as the artists there are very supportive and generous with their time and their vast knowledge.
Today’s quote is so fitting, as I start over.
