I've felt a need to create away from the computer lately. It's easy to get burnt out. Especially when you're 'creating' for a living and there are demands and deadlines on a daily basis. Newsflash: and so business ownership all the world over.
I've had some watercolors my mom gave me that I started playing around with. I've used them here and there before, but this time I am really loving it and want to continue.
Currently, I am Level Rudimentary. Really basic. That said, I can still import them into my programs and fiddle with them which is a new way to create on the computer and another way to add variety to what I do and what I offer.
So far, lots of doodling as I mentioned in yesterday's post.
I painted this for my sister on Easter, since she's the holiday hostess.
These, I watercolor doodled yesterday morning. A new way to start my day to get the creative juices flowing.
Here's the thing, they can certainly be better. Way better. However, I am having fun playing with it and I'm not going to get any better without practice.
This one may be worked into a client revisions I'm working on currently, we will see.
Now I just need to order some real, honest to goodness, watercolor paper. It's on the list.
I used one of the garland wreaths I painted to create a new logo in the shop.
That's what's been happening in my creative world, what's happening in yours?
Ciao for now,
