As a way to keep myself challenged, I am switching to watercolor painting for a bit. I plan to "play" around with brushes, colors, and techniques in this pad of paper. Once it's filled with 12 pages of color, I plan on going back through and drawing on top of each like I do with the children's paintings. I'm hoping to learn a few things from doing this. One, is to focus on what I can and cannot do with watercolor paints. Another is to not focus so much on what I am making in the beginning, but focusing more on technique.
Basically, I want to paint like a child that can just "throw" paint down and yet, still be able to go back to it and make something awesome out of it. Will keep you updated!
