Whale of a Choice

Yes, my warm-up today consisted of my cheap tube watercolors and trying to steady my hand. And an awesome avocado snack to give me courage. I will have to repaint my little creature because the paints my husband got me are awesome! The brightness of these paints is something else! Dr. Ph. Martin’s Hydrus series is amazing.

I have to admit that I was a little nervous using them and didn’t even know where to start. I search some tutorials but couldn’t find what I was looking for. I just dove in…literally. I learned real quick that one drop will be MORE than enough when doing wet on wet. It also splatters really well (I have to clean off my laptop screen) from the liquid consistency.

The colors are brilliantly vibrant and I need to learn to control the color with water. I also enjoy how the two colors I used didn’t create a ‘mud’ puddle on the page. All in all my husband chose a good line. Now I need to figure out how to paint with the inks. Explorations in watercolor and ink to be continued…

Any tips and tricks, I’m all ears (eyes). I also need to decide if I’m going to participate in the A to Z challenge. I’m already doing the 6-word story daily prompt and my random daily doodle, can I fit in an A-Z challenge? My husband says yes and to do it with watercolors. I’m having fun writing, doodling, and painting on my own. I could do a-z things to put on toast or attack of the killer foods short stories. Yeah, I giggled. Now, to try and write. Have a good night ya’ll.
