Back to Basics

So in my last post I mentioned some watercolor paints I’d found on Indiegogo and said I’d been thinking about trying my hand at watercolors. I ended up doing some research on watercolor painting, discovered Copic markers, and so I went out and bought some of each, pulled out an old unopened set of sketch pencils I had as well as an unopened package of watercolor pencils and set to work… Here are some of the results:

Traditional Watercolor:

Copic Markers:

Watercolor Pencils, water, ink

More to come, I’m sure:)

Color

I’ve been searching around for several months for a creative hobby…hands-on creative. I used to paint, and I have missed that, but I always painted in oils on canvas or acrylics on wood (yes, that I cut myself:)

I’ve been thinking of trying watercolor painting and then this popped up on my Facebook timeline. The product looks amazing, and I can’t wait to get my set!!

This is what the paint kits look like, and you can also order a personalized wooden case for them. Very portable and convenient. If you go on the Indiegogo site, you can see video reviews of the paints. I was surprised at how vivid the colors are, and the artists who have reviewed them seem very impressed!

Just look at some of the amazing things people have created using these paints!
