Got a bit distracted while researching for my dissertation…managed to find a pack of sharpies and ended up doodling…
It was a lovely summers day this week, so I felt like taking full advantage of this, sit outside in the fresh air, and decided to get back into watercolour painting.
The last time I did watercolour painting was 3 years ago for my Art A levels, I looking back now, I remember that I really used using this method of painting but never continued using it. So this perfect summers day seemed like a good opportunity to do so.
I decided to draw and paint an image that was quite small as I didn’t want to take on a huge image just yet as I had no idea how the outcome of the painting would be, so I went for a safe option and painted an image of a Tyrannosaurus Rex skull. While painting, I felt that it wasn’t really going to plan as the colours just weren’t blending together and just generally looked rubbish, but I pushed myself on and didn’t abandon it. Overall, I am pleased with it, I don’t think its the best in the world, but seeing as I haven’t used watercolours in years, I think it’s a good start.
I can happily see myself using this method of painting more in the future!
