Welcome to Watercolor Wednesday!
Today's lesson is about doing the work even when you don't like how something turns out! It feels like "Ug! I hate this!"
Can you relate? Ever had one of those art making sessions?
We are our own worst critics. Give it a few days and maybe you will like what you preciously hated. I don't really like to use the word hate. However, I want to honestly share what goes through my mind in this situation.
The art I am sharing is made on 140 lb. watercolor paper. I used India ink and QoR watercolor paint by Golden. I also used a little Liquid Acrylic ink by Daler Rowney-FW Pearlescent.
Amy Maricle recently posted on Instagram something about making ugly art on purpose. That's another way to help yourself move through the junk. Intend to make an ugly piece of art, and then move on. It's okay! The world will not collapse!
Anyway, I bet you get the picture by now.
May you create art, no matter what. Know in your heart that every single person makes art that they do not like at one time or another. It's a natural part of the creative process. Moving beyond that, and into something new is what matters.
Blessings to You!
