'This world is but a canvas to our imagination' - Henry David Thoreau
|Watercolors By Andrea Burke, WVWS||
It's coming along....but honestly not the way that I hoped it would be. Many years ago, I took private art lessons from Leia Thompson-Wood in Martinsburg, WV. She owned a gallery/art supply shop and had, at that time, a 2 year old little girl. We would paint while Abby would nap and my favorite part was if she would wake up and play with me! She'd sit on my lap and help me paint. But what I learned from her Mommy still holds true, and I'm finding myself leaning towards her methods after trying this dot by dot wet/wet stuff. Leia would start with the lights and then slowly build up on the outer edges - each time going further towards the outside and softening the edges of each layer. Serves the same purpose, but some how comes out much more clearer and with more depth.
