I researched photos and watched a tutorial. I made previous attempts.
This morning I took a second look at what went wrong and painted. I added a few more layers. I used a size 10 brush. A size 10 brush made it easy to do the diagonal right and left strokes for each petal. I had the right tones of blue purple. I finished up with warm vanilla acrylic paint. Oh how I love this white acrylic.
The two big lessons here are fall in love with the process . The other is that there are no mistakes. Bouns idea: This would be a great thumbprint project for kids. I should try this.
I’ve decided once and for all that this book is a journal of a road trip. Sketches in pen and watercolor will do just fine. It’s ok if it’s a little messy. It’s a journal right?
Oh, I was suppose to sketch my shoes. I’ll sketch and paint them tomorrow.
