Here are my first feeble attempts:
I am planning to try watercolor again today in the hopes that I won't overwork it. I am planning to remember a video I saw in which Vinita Pappas tries to draw a garlic with watercolor paint using the fewest of brush strokes. I love how this woman paints and used to subscribe to her blog, but now it is a subscription and though I think it is probably worth it, it is beyond my means.
One of my favorite watercolor artists, Jean Haines, posted a still life of flowers in a pitcher on a windowsill for readers to attempt and I am hoping to try that today using the fewest brush strokes possible. I need to learn to walk away for awhile and then come back and look with fresh eyes.
I just got off the treadmill and need to go get some breakfast. I am planning to get on it again in a couple of hours. I think an hour a day in two half hour sessions is what I need to get rid of this extra flab I've put on over the course of the last month or so. I do want to look nice in my little black dress that I am wearing to an evening wedding in about 2 weeks.
For now I'll say tata. I hope you are keeping cool - it is another scorcher here today - and that you are able to find time to make art.
