My Journey

oooooooh..K~ Dorothy click your heels and here we go blogging down the turquoise brick road….this blog will post my painting journal with tips and challenges along with some talented fellow painters.

Welcome to My Watercolor Experiences
Years of teaching and painting with watercolor continues to be a mystery. It has its’ own will which keeps me exploring the uniqueness of this medium. The reaction of intense colors as they wash across a sea of white paper is part of the mystery. Colors may remain a single hue or marry making beautiful neutral relationships. I really enjoy the beginning of a new painting because colors are fresh and clean. Then reality creeps in with what shapes and how much information do I want to share with the audience. Watercolor can be strong hard edges giving detail or soft edges with changing shapes to create your idea giving the artist an avenue for many expressions of emotions.With that said….it is hard to say whether I chose watercolor or it chooses me. What ever the case it has been a journey only God could have orchestrated. Never in my colorful dreams would I have stepped out on my own. Hope you will enjoy some of the paintings, tips, and fun from this blog…Jo Beth
