Today's watercolor painting was another "white" lotus painted on a white background. I used Winsor Newton Cobalt Violet paint mixed with some Winsor Newton Permanent Rose. I did not lay down any pencil lines first, painting only with the brush and water.
I'm starting to think about what's next after I finish painting my 30 lotus flower studies in watercolor. I've developed a habit of painting daily which I want to continue. I have grown in my ability to partner with watercolor paint and water to create something after accepting one never really masters it. Above all, I found I enjoy blogging about art and life. I'm immensely grateful to anyone who takes the time to read what I share.
I've shared a little of the backstory of why I paint and why I'm painting lotus flowers, but there's far more to learn and share. In summary, it's all part of how I've dealt with caring for my father in his late-stage Alzheimer's, hospice, and death. What I've learned from him, and who I chose to become in the space of blank slate he's left. Please stop by from time to time after the 30 in 30 challenge is over as I'll be sharing more of what I've learned.
