I have been making some cards this past month but mostly I have been practicing my watercolor skills. I am getting a little better week by week, and I find that painting the same subject two or three times really teaches me a lot about mixing colors and how to get the best consistency of paint for the subject matter. I have shared a few of these on Instagram and/or Facebook so I thought I would share them on my blog. Keep in mind I am just a beginner and hope to be much better by this time next year! Below are some projects that I did in November and December. I seem to be drawn to animals (mostly birds), flowers, and landscapes. Today I will feature some of the critters I’ve been working on as well as a picture of my instructor and classmates who helped me learn so much!
