From my first two abstract paintings, I felt like I do not know what I was doing. I didn’t love both paintings at all. It felt like I was doing them for the sake of #worldwatercolormonth .
Last night I changed my approach for today’s painting from project to play. I let the pigment dance on the paper longer. Letting go of control was something I NEVER do with my art. But I think it is significant for me to do it to learn and understand abstract paintings. Looking at the pigment dance with water is something a watercolor artist has to experience. I can’t tell you how amazing it was to look at the small piece of paper with a single color and a lot of water making a mark and moving me so much. Even before the paper was dry, I already saw tattered wings and open palms. That was the sign I never knew I was waiting for. It wasn’t a light bulb moment, it was more than that. It was a feeling of yes, I can let go and nothing wrong will come out of it.
I would like to take this opportunity to send everyone a big big hug and a big thank you for encouraging and cheering me on this world watercolor month. Thank you for supporting my big crazy weekly themes just so I could push myself to learn how to draw and watercolor. Your magic dusts is still working its magic and I am still riding the magic mushroom. ❤ ❤ ❤
