About a year ago I got the bug to try my hand at watercolor! I’ve thought about it more and more and finally purchased some supplies to get started. My supplies arrived in the mail today and I really couldn’t wait to dive in so I didn’t!!! I had been watching watercolor tutorials all week to keep me busy while I waited for my paints to arrive! I found a quick tutorial on wreaths and here you go! my very first watercolor ever! As the message indicates “live simply” I did a very simply wreath for my first try!
Every year I try to learn new skills, this has included a variety of things like crochet, kitting, sign making, quilting, and photography! I usually stick to a certain subject until I feel like I have mastered it or I’ve decided I simply should just leave it to the pros!! Thankfully Rachel has picked up the slack where quilting is concerned but a few of my hobbies have turned into skills I use almost every day and actually help support my family.
I often use watercolor vectors of other artist for my blog and for free printables. But I find that I’m usually after something very specific and I can’t always nail down what I’m looking for! SO I think It’s high time I learned how to do it myself! I’m excited to try my hand more at this and learn some new techniques and skills!
With the power of YouTube there really isn’t much you can’t teach yourself for free these days! Watching a bunch of tutorials surely wont make me an expert at anything so here’s to getting some actual practice!
