As many of you know, back in January I decided to have a creativity challenge so I would do something creative every month. A way for me to keep creative all year, try new things and maybe learn something. I am behind, horribly, and this next post may actually be considered cheating! It is my challenge and so I don’t care.
Here is the challenge, for those of you keeping score!
Sun and Water
For June I was to create something with sunshine and for July I was supposed to create something to do with water. Now it’s September. In an effort to catch up I creatively put the two together!
It was a beautiful fall afternoon and the sun was shining through my large front window. I have a coffee table with some plants on it that made a lovely setting. I put my yoga ball as a chair and it made a spectacular place to paint. Set up complete.
I have always wanted to learn how to paint with watercolours. THE WATER. I have not been a painter or a draw-er. This is something I would like to be able to do and I believe anything you want to learn just takes practice. The less natural talent, the more practice required! Using what I had, the shadow from the plants, I could start my creation. THE SUNSHINE.
I started to paint. I originally wanted a book to “learn” how to watercolour. After seeing the cost of a book though, I decided to check out the World Wide Web to find some basic painting tutorials. Mainly, it was from Pinterest. I love Pinterest and I think my research made me somewhat successful.
The Final Product
Here it is, final product. Everything except the signature, which is child like at best, I kind of like! And it was fun!
There it is! My cheating sun and water combined June and July Creativity Challenge 2017! Not bad, right?
Now, can I combine August and September before the end of the month and really catch-up??
