I think better in pencil's darks and lights,
so I started with a sketch.
Then I set everything outside on the back deck
as the sun went down and it got cooler out.
This is my new Koi Watercolor set. I hadn't used it yet!
I began with one pink color, varying its strength...
I learned that I really disliked my paintbrush.
Honestly, I'm not even sure what to get...
If you have favorites and tips for me, please tell me!
I added green...
Here's my Tropical inspiration, on the deck:
I know I am not finished with it.
I need more depth, more contrast...
Not sure if I will paint anymore on it,
but maybe I'll use colored pencils or ink...
The best part was just doing it!
I have been waiting for my summer vacation
so I could focus on learning watercolors a bit.
much to practice and learn
but I needed to just start.
Thank you for looking,
and for any paintbrush pointers..
