Someone asked if I could share some of my watercolor projects. I do share them now and then at the end of blog posts, but I thought I’d just do a post with a collection of some of the watercolor experiments I’ve done recently.
For those who don’t know, I started doing watercolor in November (2018) as sort of a personal attempt at art therapy. The holidays are difficult for me and I thought perhaps if I developed a new hobby with some opportunity for creativity, it’d help distract me. I also thought it might be a good way to practice being mindfully in the moment of an activity. It worked on all fronts. 🙂
So here’s a small sample of some of my watercolor projects. Some are completely original works and others are based off online tutorials. I’ve basically been learning to paint through YouTube videos. 🙂
