Has it ever made you re-evaluate your life, your mental thought process etc.?
Now... what I am about to share with you might not be that striking or impactful - or it could be - if you enjoy the simplicity of statement.
"WE NOT ME"
Also... please pardon my photos - my camera settings were a tad off... I really need to work on that!
This watercolor is a work in progress - so please pass on judging me too harshly... I just have the basics on here and am working towards finishing it up :)
Watercolor set - raid your kiddos craft closet.
3 small paint brushes
- one for block coloring (stiff bristles with angle)
- 2 for blending
a bowl of water
Pencil for tracing out letters onto canvas
statement to paint
I made this on a 8 1/2 x 11 page, with Word Art - played around with the sizing until I got what I was wanting.
Cut the lettering out with the exacto knife
After I cut the letters out, I traced the statement onto my canvas. I chose to place the saying in the lower right corner... I like the look of things that are a bit off center.
Then decided how I wanted to paint the words on the canvas - I chose the gradient of the rainbow.
I am thinking of using a very light spatter technique on the canvas in dark blues and light blue to fill in the white on the canvas...
It was fun to use watercolors again, I haven't worked with them in quite some time, I had forgotten how easy they are to work with. Now to find another project I can use the watercolors on.
Have you gotten inspired to try out a new art supply lately? Have you made anything with it?
