Good Morning loves!
I have been doing some soul searching and me finding lately, and I figured out that I am lacking some creativity in my life!
I've always been in love with water colors and wanting to try it. I came upon a post on Miss Mustard Seed that she started painting with water colors herself and I was hooked.
I have always loved drawing, rendering, and coloring as a kid and growing up as a creative soul. So I thought painting would be a perfect outlet.
I did a bit of research and asking around, and found out some good paint options, brushes, and paper at the art store. I love cruising around the art store, it puts me right within my element. I could spend hours and lots of $$ in there, but my bank account and myself had to leave before I got carried away!
It feels so good to find something that's for me. The thing I love about water colors are that there isn't a right or wrong way to paint. It's free spirit, layering, and emotional painting in my eyes. It's relaxing and therapeutic when you really get into it, I pop some music on and just let my imagination go.
Here's my first one,
I definitely need some more practice and have a lot more to learn, I also think I used too much water on my brush (the paper started turning upwards). But who knows maybe with some you tube videos, practice, and classes I'll become a pro! (He-he)
But for me this just a hobby among the other few that I came about to try, and find more things that I enjoy doing. So no matter if it's right or wrong. It's right for me and I'm learning, not perfecting. That's what I love about water colors and life in general. That it will teach me to just let go, that it doesn't need to be perfect, and it's my own.
Plus I have pretty art I can start putting up it's a win-win!
What do you do that's just for you?
