Well here goes! My first watercolor…after 3 tries I finally have something that resembles a painting. It is still fraught with errors but it is so much better than my first attempts that I felt like sharing. The full piece is a study done by Susan Harrison-Tustain in one of her instructional DVDs. As hard as I tried I could not manage the porcelain bowl that sat behind the rose…so I cut my losses and settled for the rose and bud alone. Anyway, I like her technique and instruction style so her DVDs have become my Holy Grail. My plan is to create a page soon, here within this blog, dedicated to my watercolor endeavours which I’ll update as I learn and hopefully grow.
