So, I’ve gotta ‘do it all’ right? Well, not really… but I wanna! :D
And I’ve wanted watercolor pencils since I worked at the craft store, it just wasn’t something that I ever got around to buying. (<– not sure how that’s possible since I bought practically everything else in the store!)
I’m not really sure what my end goal is here. Make art for my house? eh–maybe, eventually.
For now? Just have fun.
I had absolutely no clue how the pencils worked with the water; how much brushing would eliminate pencil lines; how concentrated the color would be; how colors would mix… you get the idea. I didn’t know a thing.
In the end I liked how this middle set of color studies turned out. And yes, we’re going to call them ‘color studies’ because that sounds fancier… like I know what I’m doing. (except: see above)
And my all time favorite is just those three lines, it reminds me of a whimsical dancer. Why? I dunno… but that’s art. Period.
Next time, maybe I’ll read some instructions first… maybe it’ll give me a new direction to practice. Of course, any direction might be better than just a big experiment. But it was fun anyway. :)
