Daily Creative Day 5: Acrylic + Watercolor
It doesn't have to be hard. You don't have to drag out all the paints and the easel and the cups of water.
You just need a little basket of art making goodies to keep by the couch. Some watercolors, pens and a travel brush.
I take my little basket from the couch, to the dining room, to the kitchen, to the art studio. Then I can quickly throw a few items in a travel bag if I'm on the road too.
Going to my studio takes me away from my family and the warm and toasty fire. I like to be around people when they're home, so I have found that this works for me.
Keeping everything convenient helps get rid of any excuses I've obviously been brewing up of why I haven't been painting.
I'm excited to see how this regular practice will transform my artwork.
These flowers were just purple flowers in acrylic paint, a little test I had done to practice the style in my journal. I added watercolors, Caran D'ache watercolor crayons and my Pitt pen. I did the outlining last with the pen last and I like the effect.
Keep it close, keep it easy, keep it simple and watch what unfolds.
What's keeping you from making art?
