An Evening With My Watercolors


Tonight I have a bit of “me time”, and I am doing yet another thing on my need-to-do-more-often list: painting. I have had this sketch kicking around since before Christmas, and she has been nagging at me to paint her, but I kept getting cold feet. Sometimes I am that way with drawings of my own that I actually like…I fear that to add color or continue to touch them would be to ruin them. However, I need to let go of my perfectionism and enjoy the process more, otherwise I will never get anything accomplished artistically.

So it is just me, my sketch, and my beloved Yarka St. Petersburg watercolor set tonight. When she is all finished I will post the final product.
