thursday thoughts - try one more time


For Christmas I gifted myself a set of these watercolors.
I'll admit I bought them because of the colors,
not really because I wanted to use them ;)
They were calling my name though. So on Saturday I decided to sit down and try.
The last couple of times I tried watercolors I hated them. I usually paint with acrylics, and I am impatient.
But this time something different happened. I fell in love.
I still don't know what I'm doing, but I know from past experiences with my art, practice makes perfect you better. 
I was very happy with the end result.
I used a combination of watercolor and acrylic paint.
Below you can see prints of the original. They are going to be used in a special valentine project with this shop to help with this. And eventually I'll be offering them in the shop.


"Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time."
