I’ve always been in awe of the woodlands. The tall pines and oaks, gurgling of the clear streams, the wild berries, and sunlight making its way through the tangled branches….it’s almost as if I’m standing right there taking in the freshness of the pines!
Where are these memories originating from? Is it those long hours of Enid Blyton books I devoured as a kid? Or those hikes I went on with my family? Maybe a little of both!
Nonetheless the woodland is a beautiful, whimsical place! I sometimes wonder what secrets this place holds. Do you?
Finally done with the two watercolor collages that I started sometime in early September! I divided a paper into squares or rectangles and filled them with scenery whenever I felt like watercoloring.
Sometimes when you really want to paint or test out a particular scenery in mind, but on a small scale, this is a good way to do so as you get to finish the work quickly and also get a general idea of how the scenery ends up looking.
I totally enjoyed this process since there was no time restraint and a lot of freedom involved. However, don’t get tempted to finish in a hurry! It doesn’t matter whether the painting is a product of your imagination or an inspiration from a photograph, looking back, each painting has a story to tell about what you were thinking at the time or where you were!
