Completed another portrait in my art journal a few days ago. I’ve really been working on my drawing, proportions and also my watercolor painting of faces and that was this girls only purpose. The techniques I learned for this girl are new for me and challenging but closer to what I have been chasing and where I want to go . Watercolors are so challenging but so amazing to me. You can do so many different things and different techniques and I am enjoying learning and painting and discovering what I can do with them. I have already drawn a few more since learning these new skills and will continue to paint and stay here. I feel comfortable here and going to stay here awhile.
One of my resolutions for 2018 is to challenge myself artistically. I see things and have a vision usually of how I want them to be, but a lot of times I get carried away. I love mixed media and creating something out of multiple things but I also love a much softer, or romantic look. I have accumulated so many art supplies and have been working with so many different mediums in my mixed media projects, when I saw this class offered, as soon as I saw this lesson I had to sign up. This is by artist Katrina Koltes and the class is called Watercolor Dreams. I am so proud of this Butterfly Girl. Drawing completed by me, no tracing involved and only a few colors of watercolor.
