A New Direction

So, I'm in a down spot when it comes to sewing anything these days. I think it's the winter doldrums. So I've decided to to try my hand at painting using watercolors. I use to do this when I was teaching but it's been at least 12 years since I've picked up a brush.

I chose a scene and started to pencil it out.

I'm using a #2 pencil lightly.

Now, the fun starts. Watercolors!!!

I know that this first scene is going to be rough but I'm loving the process.

I've used Rubber Cement on the woodpecker so that the watercolors won't bleed into it. Tomorrow or whenever, I'll rub off the cement and complete everything.  I'll also need to do a bit more work on the tree bark.

You're way braver than I am! I could never even begin to paint anything. My mother did a lot of water colors in her day but unfortunately I didn't inherit that particular gene from her. She, on the other hand, didn't quilt...those genes came down to me from my grandmothers.

Well, I don't paint. That is a new use of rubber cement for me. Cool! Where did you learn that trick.

Merry Christmas

I am impressed - I never thought of using rubber cement as a frisket or resist for painting.

Don't count the days, make the days count!
