Shaking it up today, I went with a still life. This great old crock is from the collection of our friends Ron and Carol. Yes, when I visit friends I take photos to paint!
Question for the day: Why did you pick watercolor over other mediums? There are actually three reasons for my settling on watercolors.
#1 When I decided to actually be an artist I had no money. Watercolor was the least expensive , least messy and most portable of the mediums.
#2 In the "plan" Linda and I started, the thought was to build a clientele with my work. We felt it would be confusing to see different mediums under one tent out at art shows, like I could not decide who I wanted to be. Many artists get bored and jump around, I wanted to build a reputation.
#3 I had painted in all the mediums and I found the other mediums were pretty easy for me. Not a big challenge. If you made a mistake you could just paint over it. But with watercolor you need to plan, think ahead, learn to mix color, understand how washes of color work together. It was a challenge I needed to keep interested. I had a love hate relationship for years, now its just love!
