Yesterday I turned 46 but celebrations started last Saturday with a one on one watercolor class with a very talented local watercolorist, Enon de Belen. You may find her art here instagram, youtube, facebook. Enon and I had a great time last weekend. She prepared a lot of materials for me to learn, practice and play with. We talked about everything about life in general, life as an artist and everything about watercolors. We shared our love with winsor and newton paints and about the gear acquisition syndrome many in the local art scene fall into. We also shared views on the importance of building our skills more than acquiring expensive materials other than quality watercolor paper. It was a great kick off for my birthday week celebrations.
Sharing with you a sample of a worksheet Enon demonstrated and let me finish at home.
Learning starts with discovering where I can improve with trial and error. Enon’s reaction when I sent her this scanned copy, was Wow! She also told me that I can hold my own with the loose style. It will improve through practice she ended. And I agree with her. I think I can marry this loose style and the style I tend to veer to which is mostly within the lines, precise, concise, detailed. It is another journey I am most excited to go through.
And of course how can I not share with you the mandatory family birthday pictures. 🙂
Cheers to new adventures and a continued blissful life! ❤ ❤ ❤ 🙂 🙂 🙂
