Therefore, I have been on a painting kick of threes. When I first started painting, artists would tell me to paint and RE-paint paintings (and as you say "paint and re-paint", say it in a dreary tone of voice) but that sounded SO pathetically BORING. Who wants to repaint a painting? Bleah...
But now....at the wise old age of 3 (3 is how old I currently am in the watercolor world) (Happy Watercolor birthday to meeeee), I am starting to see the wisdom of repainting certain things. With all of my "three" paintings, I definitely have worked the kinks out by the third one.
Here is painting #1....of plopping paint on the page (plopping is such a lovely word) and painting the flowers from the shapes that the original wash makes.
So, if you take home anything from this blog posting, it must be that 3 is a lovely number and in a pinch, you can use it as an "m" or a "w" (when turned sideways).
