I am NOT an artist and really have never done watercolors before except to fool around with them at the beach. I always take my art supplies to the beach!
I cut out a pattern, then traced sixteen little rectangles on a sheet of watercolor paper so I would have lots of canvasses to paint!
Then I got some water, my brushes and this cute little mixing dish that my mother had...
I washed some color on and let it do its thing. With watercolors you really never know how the colors will blend. Unless you know what you are doing, which I do not!
This one I hope will soon look like a hibiscus flower.
A sunset perhaps? You really need to have an imagination here!
This one needs more detail.
This is an attempt at sand dunes...
I really wish my mother was still here and could tell me what to do next! She and my Aunt Adelaide are REAL artists! I have several of their paintings in my home and love each one.
I'm letting my little paintings dry overnight and will try to figure out how to finish them later.
I might try to do some pastels or acrylics later? I still have 11 more little "canvasses" to do!
Hope you have a nice evening!
