Day 2 Painting #2

I figured since I was done early today I would actually post on the day I did it.  I call this "Salad"  LOL  I actually like my tomato but not my lettuce so much.  I did alot of mixing colors for this as I only have a little 12 piece travel watercolor set.  I do have watercolor pencils but I just want to get used to regular watercolors.  I will have to get some other watercolor paper though!  I had bought these Crescent Artist Trading Cards for watercolor and they are sooooooo flimsy.  Won't buy them again.  I usually make my own but I was taking them on a trip with me...which of course I never used.  So I figured I would try them now.  My first 2 paintings are on them...but I'm switching them tomorrow! Painting these now gets me in the mood to do the art journaling that I have been wanting to do.  I'm always afraid because I want things to be perfect.  But if I don't do it, I will never get better!  So I have started somewhere....feeling much better.

30 Little Paintings in 30 Days.

Here is my first watercolor ATC that I painted last night.  I'm following Jane Ann Wynn while she does her paintings.  She is what prompted me to do this challenge.  I needed a kick in the ass to get my creativeness going!!  I've been wanting to use watercolor more so I am trying my skills at it.  Here is my inspiration photo.
So stay tuned to see my progress.  I'm hoping that my skills will improve with in the next 30 days and I will be able to see the progress.  Come join us in the project...It would be fun to see everybody's work.  Make sure to click on the link to Jane.  She does spectacular work.  :)
