I’m finally at that place where I have some art work to share and so I signed up for SF Open Studios Oct 13-14! I will have original acrylic paintings, watercolor paintings, giclee prints, and postcards for sale. Stay tuned!
July was World Watercolor Month, to raise awareness and funds for art education. The idea is to paint everyday and share on instagram with #WorldWatercolorMonth. It was fun yet challenging. There were prompts of what you could paint but I didn’t follow them. It does help to challenge yourself to get out of your comfort zone and try new things. I tried painting fur, feathers and other textures, which was delightful. Instead of doing a theme, I went all over the place with landscapes, cityscapes, still life, nature, pet portraits, & abstract. I filled up two sketchbooks and also tried new materials, such as the liquid watercolor and painting with absorbent ground on canvas. There are a lot of artists on instagram and I enjoy browsing through art there. It has helped me with my motivation. A great use of social media!
Here are some highlights:
