I squealed like a toddler when I saw Jen had released her latest course! I can not wait to dive in, head first - and throw caution to the wind.
Here's my 'door' that I painted as per Jen's instruction on Day One. Drills coming up!
Days 1 and 2 of Jen's Drill recommendations to build muscle memory and my mark making vocabulary. I really enjoy these types of drills because they are so meditative. Of course, you are actually creating something as well as working towards mastering a particular mark which can often be the day's inspiration without realising it, (hence, my leaves piece). Still so much more to go and while I may skip about, I am dedicated to getting in 14 days of drills at varying skill combos to see what improvement I can after the two-week dedication.
Drillin, drillin', drillin'!!
I found the letters to be quite challenging, so that will stay on my daily drill routine for some time I think. Interestingly enough, painting them opposite from the way I write them seems more comfortable, how weird is that?
I'll just leave these right here....
It has been a hot minute since I updated this project. But I wanted to show that just like the scribble map when sketching, I have incorporated watercolor warm-ups before I paint intentionally.
I've noticed a few things as a result:
Jen did say at the end of her class, it takes as much time as it takes. So, zero stress and complete joy are the name of my game here.
P.S. Circles are harder than they look.
