Week 1

Hello everyone!

I am really excited about what I did today. Today I began a painting, worked with watercolors, with Catherine of Tigs White Canvas . And instead of my usual down playing of what I have done. I'll just post it. Although, I do have to say, I have issues with perspective! Yes. I. do! And I hope that these lessons with Catherine will help me learn/develop my sense of perspective.. So, without further ado........

I worked on it for about 2 hours (probably should have left it alone around an hour into it) and I ended up going over area's I wished I hadn't. But, oh well. This painting doesn't even look like what I was trying to paint. The actual painting looks better than the picture of it. At least, in my own opinion.

So, week 1 accomplished. Now I will go back to my quilting. Nope, still not done. But I'm getting there!

Does anyone else want to join in on the fun of painting with Catherine? Check her blog out and give it a go! I must admit, I had fun, even if painting with watercolors is a bit too loosie-goosie for me! ;-)

Have a great day ya'll!
