Watercolor Photo Painting
I have taken several pictures of things from the studio and plan to turn them into line drawings to paint some simple watercolors from the photographs. I printed these two line drawings on Arches 140 LB paper. It's fun and quick. My goal was actually to paint them more whimsical-like such as Kelli Nina Perkins does (she has a great DVD). But they always end up with fairly realistic colors. Maybe I will paint them again with bright and outrageous colors and see what happens. I just love the yummy colors she uses. It takes courage to use those bright colors and I must try and see if I can overcome my fear!!! Just do it!
