Watercolor is hard....
So recently I found a few quotes that I wanted to enhance with some "simple" watercolor and uhhh boy did I get in over my head lol
I have been working with watercolors for a while in a more abstract way so I thought I could whip something up pretty quickly that would enhance the quote but it was much much more difficult than I expected lol take note I am using basic Crayola watercolors (honestly they're leftover from my son from school lol) and I'm using a sketch journal, not watercolor paper.
However, better tools would not have changed the outcome of my piece here lol
Granted the challenge is welcome and I will definitely be doing more watercolor just much more slowly and I will still probably add more elements and won't do many full watercolor pieces... at least not for a while.
I'm really not too interested in this kind of art so it was already kind of out of my comfort zone but wow. Did I learn A LOT.
So here is my eyesore for now lol I honestly considered adding chalks or pen and enhancing it because I knew that I could improve it, but I wanted to keep it in it's raw form in hopes that it can be a reference later as I improve.
Everything ... well almost nothing is about the "masterpiece" it's always about creating and learning and using what you learn to enhance your next peice.... at least for me.
Thanks for stopping by!
