Exploring a new painting medium

In September, I started something a bit out of my comfort zone.  Don’t get me wrong, I have definitely painted with watercolor before but I had never actually taken a watercolor class.   It is a little scary working with a type of paint you are not all that familiar with.

I have been painting all my life, but really my GO-TO paint was always acrylic.  I have come to the realization that making certain types of color in my paint palette is a bit trickier than I thought…and what…”NO WHITE”.  Can’t I just add a little Acrylic white in there!

Here is my first completed painting.  My professor was quite impressed and with a sigh of relief, I think I can continue.

If painting seems scary to you at first…sometimes it is important to just try it out.  I can’t tell you how many paint parties I have taught that scared people.  In the end everyone was beyond satisfied and even wanted to try it again!
