This is a wee bit of ink and some watercolor In Strathmore Visual Journal, 140 CP, 9 x 12. I was hoping for a piece with more impact, after seeing some YouTube vids on painting jays. I am not too keen on it, and got sick of working on it. Some of my proportions could have been better on the drawing. However, I wanted to show I am attempting to participate.
Kay, thank you for the kind words. Actually, I have been painting for years, but not nearly as frequently as other members. Many are producing more in a week than I do in a year! As a teen, I did a wee bit, and then took a workshop in 2001, but did not paint very much until I retired several years ago. Often, other priorities may not have me doing much for weeks. Even if I am disappointed in the outcome, I am trying to develop a better attitude towards the entire learning process. If I only posted the paintings that I felt were "good", only a few yearly would make the cut.
