IMT~Open Challenge ~To Just Paint

For IMT Open Challenge....I challenged myself to just paint....Never done this sort of painting in my life....I call this piece...."A Day At The Lake"....It is done in watercolors on a 5 x 7 gesso'd canvas. I had quite a good time with this! I think I will keep this up....It is very much enjoyable and calming to paint with watercolors.

I too love the colurs. It seems so otherwise traditional but the colours give it such cheer, such quirkiness.

Thank you Melanie! A whole year without art! I think I would wither! lol I agree with you on once you start...you go into a zen state...like the art just happens and then you wake up and say "I created this"
Thank you once again I will definately be painting more!
