|My favorite from the past week: Feather-Day 13|
|Day 15: Brush Techniques|
- repeat the process all over again until you have achieved success!
The photos in this post show paintings where I combined technique and practice with application. The feather above was created after watching a video on Skillshare. If you don't know about Skillshare, it's a community of learners and teachers who share what they've learned with you. The lessons are in YouTube format, and yes, you can probably find everything you need for free on YouTube. However, for a small amount monthly, you can explore all sorts of classes that go into more depth and break down the steps to ensure success. You have an opportunity to upload your work and have the instructors give feedback. The feather above and a few other pieces were created after watching Peggy Dean's 10 Easy Watercolor Projects. Click on the link to get a free class, if you'd like to see what it's all about: Skillshare 10 Easy Watercolor Projects. You will have to sign up to get the free class. Now on to this week's projects:
Although Skillshare is a great platform, you really don't have to pay big bucks to learn how to watercolor. There are plenty of demos to be found on Instagram, bloggers, company websites, and YouTube. The piece below was inspired by a @hello_worldpics on Instagram. I love following them as they have the most vibrant, colorful pictures from all around the globe. The window does seem to be a little unbalanced, but that really is how it looked to me. Life is a little off, right folks?!!
