First Marks on the Blank Page

In the last post it was all about the fear of the white page and  a change in mindset. With that change, thinking a little differently than usual,  I went for it!

And this is the result.

Ready to make the first marks on the blank page.

The paper needed a friend, a pal, to keep it company.
Why not make a splash, let it happen, lose control?
Look, it made something on it’s own!
I gave it a few drops of alcohol to stir up the party.

One of the most fun qualities of watercolor is it’s ability to be unpredictable.
You give it a stage, great paper, you give it music, water, could it dance for us?

The Joy of Watercolor is it’s nature to run, to bloom, to travel, to be free. Part of why I love this medium over any other is this thing that it does, have a mind of it’s own to move and spread, travel and mix. Why do you love it? Do you like to watch it do it’s thing?

Here’s my first brave mark. What did you splash on your blank page?
