more watercolor.

I learned about a wonderful book while taking my class at the art museum. It’s entitled ‘Water Paper Paint’, by Heather Smith Jones. Annnnd I love it.

The book is filled with all kinds of projects for the creative person. You don’t have to be an artist to do any of this stuff. As for me, I plan on trying out every project in here. There are many pages of basic information that preface the projects. So if you are not familiar with watercolor, Jones tells you everything you need to know before getting started.

I was mesmerized by one project in particular. It’s a study in pattern, color, and working with brushes of different sizes. It’s a series of glassy blobs, tied together with black dots. I know it sounds a little crazy. But here are the results….

I love it so, so much that I am exploring a series. These are not difficult to complete and therefore, inexpensive to create. I think I will get a bunch of them framed to sell for Christmas. Believe me, this is just the tip of the iceberg with this book. I plan on experimenting with more projects in the future. I highly recommend this book for any creative spirit.

      Thanks! It always amazes me that simple patterns can produce striking results. I’ve already started another one. Can’t wait to have a whole series!
