My Imaginary Garden

I’ve been working on this page intermittently for a few weeks. Mostly not working on it due to other priorities taking precedence. Taking my time with this page has taught me a couple of things. The first is that I can still be creative as an artist no matter how busy my life becomes. The second is I don’t have to be proliferate in order to feel I am a productive artist.

Inspiration for this piece came from watching several of CeeCee’s videos on youtube. I love her work in watercolor. She makes it look so easy but getting the soft blending and colors isn’t so easy. I think though my personal style may lean more towards brighter colors.

I really enjoyed taking a blank page and adding random colors in watercolor and then seeing what I can create from it. It is a wonderful exercise for the imagination.
