I’m really getting into this watercolour malarkey now! I’m not counting my chickens yet, but I may be able to do a few more than I thought, if I keep this up, for July’s World Watercolour Month.
We’re once again on the Nature Trail, and look what we’ve bumped into today… a young stag. Once again I’ve used my el-cheapo paints, the lacklustre coloured ones, but today they seem a little brighter somehow. They’ll probably fade as the evening progresses, but at least I’ve managed to take a photo whilst the colours still have colour in them. I’m only using these el-cheapo paints to practice with, but it’s a start. It’s been literally decades since I last picked up a paintbrush, but I really enjoy it. Mind you, I quite like being creative, I quite like colour, and I quite like trying to do something different. We should all be just a little more creative everyday!
On this painting, the eye is my favourite part. It kind of just happened, but I seem to find that with eyes. I don’t know what that’s all about; I did a digital painting of a tiger once, and the eyes on that just happened as well. I must have a knack for eyes, I suppose… pity my own don’t have the same knack. I have a blain on my small eye now, the one on my big eye is all but gone after all this time, but – ah, I digress. Mustn’t grumble.
So. I wonder what we’ll find on the Nature Trail tomorrow, if anything? Time will tell. (This painting took me 45 minutes from start to finish).
