Aiden is still home sick from school today (day three) and I’m starting to have painting withdrawals since I haven’t been able to go to my studio since last week. The only paint I have left here at home is my watercolors, so I’m taking being stuck here at home as a sign that it’s time to start exploring working with them (which I’ve been wanting to do any way, but haven’t taken the time).
I’m using one of the barely used journals I have (I keep trying to do the “art journaling” thing, but it just never seems to gel for me….I’m more of a sketcher when it comes to journaling). It has heavy weight double sized paper that works for wet media, so I was hoping it would work for this little experiment…and it did! Can’t wait to try this on the couple of pieces of watercolor paper I found this morning that missed getting moved to the studio.
I’ve also been brainstorming ideas for my next paintings as well as what my next painting class will be at my studio (in Portland, OR). I’m planning it for the evening of March 8th (which is a Friday) and I’m going to teach an abstract background with a whimsical tree for this next one. What do y’all think?
