Art Exchange days 10-13

Still sticking to water color – I’ve learned a bunch through practice and experimenting. I still don’t know much of what I’m doing. But, I really do like the way the four of these turned out. I think the reason I like the watercolor is the blending and blur of mixed color – which I am sure I am far from doing it correctly or effectively, however, I am having fun. Anyway, this isn’t about being a great artist or anything, this is about having fun and sharing my attempts as I go (including the epic flops if there are any – though honestly, if it flops that bad, I scrap it before anyone sees and start over, lol). So, here you go – these scans came out quite a bit better than the last two:

Art Exchange days 8 & 9

Still playing around with water colors and enjoying it –  these aren’t spectacular or anything, but I’ve been learning and I don’t hate how they turned out a least. I tried an experiment with the blue one, but it didn’t turn out. I think I know what went wrong & I might try it again at some point.  I also noticed that our scanner doesn’t always pick up on some of the subtler huges – just turns them white – so the clouds, for example, in the field of flowers (and the flowers are more purple in the orginal and have more variation) have more color and texture to them that what shows up in this scan. But that’s okay. It’s still a fun project.

Art Exchange Days 5&6

I decided to experiment more with watercolor – I really have very limited knowledge of what I am doing, just learning as I go. I like fairly well how the tree turned out. I am not completely sure I love the Moonrise…. I don’t hate it as much now as I did when I finished it last night though!

30 Days of Postcard Art

Another month of fun! This time it’s 30 days of art – each day we send off a postcard with art on it (usually something we’ve done ourselves) to someone in our list. Rather fun and I enjoy doing something artistic each day and I have found that I improve as I draw more. Here are days 1-4:
