I am still trying out more techniques with my watercolor painting. In both of these paintings I tried taking a shape and repeating it around the page in various sizes. I'm naturally very drawn to both jewel tones and to blues and cool colors and I find that these colors automatically keep creeping back into much of my work.
In both of these paintings I used a wet-on-wet technique which involves wetting the paper before putting down the watercolors. This creates a really neat effect with the paint where it spreads in the already wet part of the paper and the colors bleed/blend into one another.
I let this first piece dry and then added some pen ink outlines around the hearts, as well as white dots that I made with acrylic paint around the page.
For this second one I played with feather shapes, I think I'll probably try out more feathers in different shapes and colors because I'm loving the look of them.
The more time I spend with a new medium the more comfortable I become. At first I was just following a number of YouTube tutorials, but now I've become a little braver and started to make stuff up on my own. I love this stage of the process. The main thing I find when learning something new is to keep the momentum going, and be consistent. Everything else just falls into place after that.
