We returned to art class this Tuesday and I finished working on a landscape of a gum tree. I want to be able to get this right first time, of course. And, of course, that is impossible, especially with watercolour. My brushstrokes are all wrong, I still have much to learn about mixing colour and I have to learn how much water to apply to the page. And that is not going to happen in 3 lessons, even if I want it to!
I am happy with the grass though.
Am I super-critical? Yes! Do I want to go back to pastels post-haste? Yes! Will I persevere? Yes.
