Brokenhearted (Psalm 34:18)

Brokenhearted (Psalm 34:18) - student project

With Mothers’ Day approaching, I was thinking of several female friends and family members for whom this holiday is a difficult time.  The following Bible verse was my inspiration:  

"The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit."  (Psalms 34:18, ESV)

Brokenhearted (Psalm 34:18) - image 1 - student project

This class helped me to become more comfortable with letting the watercolors mix together on the page.  I also felt challenged to add details like the veins, something that I might have overlooked before.  I am eager to try more paintings with the techniques I learned in this class.
