My First Painting!

Because I don't have my hand in enough craft pots (or enough craft supplies stuffed into my closet) I decided to take up another hobby....watercolour painting~

It's something I've always wanted to learn, but I've never considered myself to be artistic.  I'm crafty sure, but artistic, not so much.

I've studied Art History though and have a great love an appreciation for painting, so I figured it's about time I just get over my fear of creating something horribly ugly, and dive in.

Here's my first painting.


It's just a bunch of blobs of colour but I kind of like it~


I really like this corner for some reason.


I've only had one class so far, but I'm having fun learning something new.  If you have any tips for me, leave a comment below.


My tip for you is...whatever it is you've always wanted to do but haven't, DO IT!  There's no such thing as failure as long as you're trying.

Oh I love it! I made a watercolor painting for my son's 2nd birthday now I've made several more "pieces of art" using watercolor since then! I have had so much fun using my watercolors. Great job on your painting!

Good job. Your closing statement really hit home. Sometimes I work myself up over failing too much. Thanks for the encouragement!

Tamara - I LOVE your painting ! When I saw the thumbnail picture it reminded me of some pretty vintage fabric!!
Good for you trying a new hobby too! Mine this year (crochet) is coming along and it's fun to be learning new things!

Thanks for linking to a Round Tuit!
Hope you have a fabulous week!

Tamara,

You like that corner because that one has depth, more so than the rest of your painting. I like your work also and keep it up. Who knows what you'll be able to do soon. This picture is a great first try. I'm no expert, just opinionated. :)

Water colors are not easy, I think you did a great job. I love to paint, but have to be inspired, just never know when it will hit.
