Here is what I produced yesterday during the first day of Bev’s workshop. I tried to loosen up and paint a little more fearless. (I usually am very hesitant and think about every single brush stroke.) Bev’s bold, fast and fearless approach to watercolor painting encouraged me to try the same. Of course she has 20 years of experience and I only about three months but you have to dare otherwise one doesn’t learn anything. So, dare to mess up. There is no wrong or right, really.
My painting did not turn out as I had imaging it when I started but I am happy with the result. Another lesson learned – go with the flow (with watercolor that sometimes means literally) and accept the outcome.
