The Post About How Amazing My Watercolor Class Was! (Includes Crappy Photographs of some Paintings)

March 23, 2011 at 12:07 AM 9 comments

Well, first of all I have to say that this Watercolor class was exceptional. Everyone was superbly talented, and the professor was incredibly good at his job. He was so great at showing us the different techniques, and he was also very accepting of our own unique styles. Some people in the class seemed to think that I have a style, but I told them that I think they are crazy. All of my art looks so different from each other! I long for the day that I actually have a “style”. Nevermind about that, I actually really enjoy just painting whimsically however and whenever I feel like it.

Anyway, here is a handful of what I ended up with after class was over. Some of the matted pieces I have already given away so I don’t have photographs of them. Sorry!

I love the last one (the bookmark) and I actually use it as a bookmark. Soon I am going to find some ribbon and beads and make a cute little “dangly majig” to go in the hole I punched.

I really love wet-into-wet watercolor. It is so freeing and soothing.

Someday I am going to make use of what I am learning about Watercolors and I am going to do great things. I am going to inspire people. I can feel it in my bones. Even if I am never the greatest technician, even if I never sell a masterpiece (or anything), even if my art only ever makes it to my blog, even if it isn’t my art that does the inspiring, I will inspire people. I want to live my life in such a way that people realize how wonderful life is.

Happy Adventures,

    WOW. WOW. WOW.

    Ladybugs are my favorite so I like that painting the best. They’re all exceptional though.

      Oh, thank you! πŸ™‚ I just like a lot of things, and I actually really like practicing and studying. Most of the time I am turning down social events so I can do something educational (unless the social event is educational). I have always loved painting… I can’t wait until I am even better at it! I still have so much to learn and practice.

      LOL Okay! I will do my best to not lose it so I can give it to you. It’s the one I painted first, on the very first day of class. πŸ˜›

I’m Tweeting (Yikes!)

  • So, I started going by my middle name in college because I've always liked it better. Now I'm RenΓ©e, and can be tweeted at "teafaellana." 3 years ago
  • I keep reading fanfics to tide me over until #OUaT is back. I can't wait to see more character development of Regina! #EvilRegals 4 years ago
  • This has somehow been the best and worst Thanksgiving I've ever had, all at once. 4 years ago

Heather loves hats that are designed to look like cute animals, fairy wings, cheese pizza, swimming in ponds, roller blading, taking silly self-portraits, learning, spending time with people, and just about everything else too. Heather does not love ... well, there isn't a lot that she doesn't love. You can probably figure it out after a little while!
