You can always find me at my favourite park in the city on a Saturday afternoon while I’m waiting for my other half to finish tennis coaching.
Lately I’ve been taking along the quilt I made and my little traveling art bag so I can do something creative while I have some down time. I’ve actually watched so many YouTube videos of others sharing what they carry on their art bags
So this week I used the absolute cheapest watercolour set to paint a scene, I was only trying to roughly replicate what I was looking at, that way I wouldn’t feel bad if it weren’t accurate. I’m thinking I still might go back over it with ink pens to add detail. Then again, I might just do another picture
Thanks for looking!
This is wonderful! Very serene.
Painting in a park sounds like a perfect day to me! Lovely job
That looks great, I like the layers on the leaves
But re paint, do yourself a favour, treat yourself to some good paints and paper-you don’t need millions of colours, and the paper doesn’t have to be the finest cotton rag paper (it just needs to be heavy) but it makes such a difference. Plus it’s so much nicer to work with
What a nice way to spend your waiting time. Your picture is lovely! Do you carry the brush water in a plastic bottle…?
I have some pretty nice watercolours at home, but it’s a much bigger pan, I think I’ll take them along with me next time. They are the kind that you can take pans out of and move them around, so I could even take a selection. But I’ll probably take the whole thing along with me next time
I do have a few of those! I took two along with me, but only used one.
I also have one of the mini spray bottles to activate the colours
I have this set, it’s tiny but really good, it’s about a million years old but it still works great. All you need is an extra brush or two and water.
You can also treat yourself to some watercolors in the tube! Then you can “make your own” pan set by squirting a dot of each color into a compact or whatever you want. Lovely painting Sounds like such a relaxing routine.
I really like it. It is very calming.
What a gorgeous little serene piece. Lovely!
I have this set too, it’s great for on the go painting. If I only remembered to paint when I’m on the go.
Nice work. I’ve been wanting to get out and paint, can’t wait for spring!
