I can’t believe how fast the years are flying by me. It seems like things that I think happened a few months ago, happened a few years ago. I drafted a post to discuss my attempts at watercolors two years ago, when I attempted a “Year of Making.” Every day, I made a point to make something even if the project was just making dinner. I would love to do another Year of Making soon. Maybe 2019 will be a good year for it.
I haven’t been sketching or drawing almost at all since college. With oil paints, I tend to do a really rough sketch with pencil before I start adding paint. Sometimes, it gets me in trouble because the composition needs more forethought than a rough sketch. With watercolors, the sketch needs to be complete. It’s a different process.
Here are some additions to my portfolio page.
