Re: Project Discussion: Watercolor ATC Trade 2018
Hi everyone, Cindy, Good point, I may have to rethink the lottery or at least part of it. Kay, I intend to frame and hang them. I paint this size of paintings (not watercolor) for a group of people we meet with for their birthdays. One lady painted a picture in return for my birthday. It was a stick figure drawing that she framed. I loved it. I have a wall that I hang other artists work on. I also bought some artwork from the thrift stores (originals only of course) that will go their too. When it is finished I expect it to be spectacular.
Ellen, I really enjoy your posts. They are always interesting and informative.
Cindy, about abstracts: I really haven't done too much in the way of abstracts either but do find them very appealing. I watched a bunch of u tube videos on abstract painting. One of them suggested to several sheets of paper on the wall. Then have a lot of one color of paint to start and a big brush. You quickly paint a circle, square and a triangle, then move to the next sheet and do the same you do it several times. It is supposed to free you up. Then you get a very large piece of paper and extra colors and start doing the same thing again only this time you start to work on it as a painting. If I can find the you tube video again I will let you know which one it is. I haven't tried it yet but do plan to do it sometime soon.
