Thread: Paintbrush, friend or enemy?

  1. #1

    Paintbrush, friend or enemy?

    I took up on painting again after countless of years. It didn't go too well, but then again I have done alot worse job before. Maybe one day I actually learn how to properly use watercolours. Untill then, it is practice, practice and more practice.

    Brilliant Sissy, with painting you don't need to a achieve a pin sharp image like a photograph, you need to show a feeling for the subject and create an image which affects the emotions which you have done.

    Thanks, I still do the rööki mistake alot, using too much colour and not enough water. But one day..

    Rookie! Dumb autocorrect. Rööki is a slang term for tobacco In my language

    Its lovely, especially the tail - it really shows the movement and texture
    Sometimes the best thing you can do is not think, not wonder, not imagine, not obsess. Just breathe and have faith that everything will work out for the best.

    That's definitely brilliant!
    Today I aim to be the best person I can be.
    That mean that yesterday or tomorrow I might be a better person,
    but today's best is more than good enough for today.

    That's really lovely Sissy!!...have you tried painting with Acrylics? It's far more forgiving that watercolours.....well it has to be for me, because I make so many mistakes!

    I have acrylics but I have used them mainly tuning up my little ponies and barbie dolls. Well I have made animals of Stones with those. But watercolours are something I really wish to learn. I mainly just draw, pencils, charcoal and Dry pastels have been my things.

    Wow, this is beautiful! I'm absolutely dreadful at drawing, my drawing style hasn't changed since I was six, haha, but I do find it rather enjoyable to do mandalas and stuff. But this is really lovely, beautiful colours and love the fluffy tail, you've done a great job at having those bits of hair sticking out along the tail.
