I’ve always enjoyed doing crafts, following a pattern and getting a desired result, art is a whole different story. I’ve never had the patience to learn to draw or paint and it always seemed so messy. Paint by number is more my style. Dip your brush in pot 27 and fill in the this little outlined area…..
For a while now I’ve been wanting to change that. I bought a tiny set of watercolors and have been playing around a bit. Actually I’ve tried them twice. I made a little color reference card and tried the step-be-step project that was included with the paints.
I enjoyed it but don’t feel like I have any idea how to proceed. I’m too used to ‘follow the directions’ and there you go, this is a little too uncertain where results are concerned. I’m a little too afraid of wasting paper and paint and TIME!
I think I will keep going, a trip to the library for some books is my next step.
I did have fun.
