Finally made the trek to the hardware store for some supplies to set up my watercolor space. I’m not a pro mind you, far from it, but it’s not the first time I’ve enjoyed “creating” even if only for myself.
I needed a plastic drop cloth to cover the dining room table and a movable flat cutting board that will release my paper during the process. When I paint I’m a very wet painter. I like the fluidity of the colors and forgiving nature more than dryer painting.
My cat “Chubby” aka Sandy-Blue is my companion throughout the process. She’s obsessed with my water bowl for some reason. It’s definitely not good for her so it’s a battle of one arm over the bowl and the other trying to paint.
My first subject will be of the Sippewissett Salt Marsh from a few weekends ago. It’s perfect for me to experiment and play with things, get re-acquainted with my colors and such. My biggest challenge has always been a hard line horizon. I’m good with the fluid stuff but where they meet hard lines is always a nail biter. Nail biter or not…bring on the workspace, time to get painting!
