I am so excited about my watercolor piece today!
This month Papertrey Ink really challenged me to do something I had never done before...go abstract!
...although I have painted some oil abstracts before, trying to do one with watercolors was different and something that had never occurred to me earlier. I have no idea why I had not attempted this subject before..it's so liberating to just go free!
For this painting I just let go and let the pigment do it's own thing. I let the painting guide me through the steps and I think this piece truly came on it's own!
Here is the inspiration picture..
When I started I knew I wanted to paint circles, so I simply drew some with the help of my painters tape and other bottle caps around the house and went from there. The most difficult decision was whether to add a sentiment or not...I was torn! But then decided to add this tiny little, 'loaded with meaning' word from the PTI Movers and Shakers Sentiments set .
Thanks for stopping by today!
Have a great week ahead!
