Just for the Fun of It – Watercolor

The Playful World of Watercolor

I know I am a black and white kind of girl, but once-in-awhile I like to add color and playfulness to my drawings.  This weekend was one of those times.  I don’t like to labor over a color piece, so what better medium to use than watercolor.  Draw a quick rough sketch, then add a little color – done.  One of the attributes I enjoy about watercolor is the variety of effects it can create.  The piece can be soft and muted with a quick color wash, it can be bold and free with the use of more pigment, or any effect in-between.

If I approach an art piece with no expectations of how I want it to look in the end I find great relaxation and freedom in the process.  This is how I approach watercolor. Really, does it mater how it turns out.  It is a piece of paper.  If I don’t like it, I can just start over and enjoy the process again.

I really enjoyed playing with these pieces. It’s a great experience, no matter how it turns out.

Freedom to be better.
