#WorldWatercolorMonth Day Three

I’m still experimenting with watercolour (and I think I will be for a while!) and ideas for said watercolour paintings to be somewhat different from the previous one.

This painting is meant to have a dream-like feel to it. As with yesterday’s post, I simply painted (although I did pencil in the central figure’s outline to get started). The structure in the background is meant to resemble a dreamcatcher, with an interpretation of the vast Universe behind it. The figure has her mystical third eye open, and then the whole image is also meant to resemble an eye’s iris. That’s how it ended up. When I first started the painting, my intentions were far grander. I’d imagined a native American woman in the foreground, still with the dreamcatcher and Universe background behind, but also featuring a wolf, an owl, a drum, and a selection of feathers. One day I shall revisit this (after a few months of practice!) and create the actual image I’d envisioned.

I’m happy with this image, however. I’ve had to shape it slightly for the blog, as the original image is less round, and the more I attempted to make it rounder, the less rounder it got! But thank goodness for PowerPoint!

 

There are many stars included in this image, including the central character. She’s been created in honour of one of Blogland’s stars in my eyes (of which there are many, I hasten to add!), Sue Dreamwalker.

Each of us carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others… Sue Dreamwalker

Sue’s positive posts, poems, artwork, stories and thoughts help to shape my world, and most probably the worlds of all of the other folk who visit her blog regularly. There is always something to think about through her words, and every single change begins with a single thought. Sue, thank you for being the star you are.

  1. Fabulous painting TL ! I love it. Of course, blues again 🙂 I used to not be fond of blue but it seems every painting you do in blues I am captivated by. Well done. As for Sue, she is one of a kind! I am envious of her amazing talents and energy and drive. It really is remarkable. The stars were on her side when she was brought into the world 🙂 I must say I admire your amazing flexibility to not only change art themes, but writing and creating so many topics to explore. Keep it coming! VK 🙂

    1. Hi Sue, it’s a pleasure! And thank you.
      Of course you can use the image, as and when! I am planning on revisiting it at a future date to try to create the actual image I had in mind, but this is what I was guided to do at the time.
      Hope you have a good weekend, Sue.
