|Carousel #3; 6" x 8"; Watercolor on Strathmore 140lb.|
This wc didn't go as smoothly as I would have liked. The phone rang. I had to answer. I shouldn't have. The interruption broke my concentration. By the time I got back, the paper had dried beyond where I wanted it to be. I loved talking to my friend, but next time, I'll call her back or ignore the ring. This painting tells me I am not a watercolorist, but then I knew that. Watercolor is just painting on the side to me. You all do it so much better.
As you might have noticed, I'm fooling around with finding a new header that says portrait, not watercolor. Yesterday, I tried out three. Ended up with the kids. It's way too big, but I left it; life was going on in another corner of my universe. The one I liked the best was a self portrait in charcoal, however, I noticed I have to darken my right eye, (left facing). Is our work never done! Your feedback is welcome as always.
