Just a shot.

So in search of art for my living room I stumbled upon many watercolor paintings I absolutely loved on Etsy. One painting was of an elk, just the head in a very wet drop kind of way. Another was of a cute lop bunny. Then yet another was just as good, but hard to explain.  Now mind you a lot of these were very complicated looking. With the price tags of each I wonder if I could ever afford any large piece. the answer to that question is – not for a long time. So what's the next best thing? I decided to try my hand at a few watercolors myself. Not without a little inspriration though from my Sister-in-law and Friend Anne. She has so much talent and has her hand in nearly everything! Check out her blog here.

At first I tried to do some free-handed flowers

Then I tried doing a dog with some crappy results.

Then a who knows what animal, ha ha!

And a few random I don't know why I tried painting that deals.

Drippy drops!

Still wet even–

So there you have it. A little Etsy and Anne inspiration. My apologies to both for my severey ill representation! 

And to everyone else, try your hand at it, it isn't too bad!

  1. Hey, don't put yourself down!!! I think your paintings look great! I can tell you that the more you do it the better you'll get. So don't give up. Just look at that tomato painting I gave you and you'll see how not good I am! :)

    Your dog looks like a greyhound, btw!
